Leptospermum Copper Sheen
Leptospermum nitidum 'Copper Sheen'
An Australian native that has reddish stems and dark coppery-red leaves; great for background colour and form in both garden and vase. In summer, 2cm white flowers with yellow centres smother the bush - so dense they give the impression of the bush being 'snow-topped'.

Evergreen, rich deep copper-red leaf colours.

Uses: Gardens, background borders and screens. Foliage is good for indoor floral use.
Position: Sunny. Tolerant of windy and wet conditions.
Care: Little needed - a light feed with a general fertiliser late in autumn is beneficial.
