Description

An intriguing evergreen plant with dainty silver leaves, Leptospermum lanigerum 'Silver Sheen' is a relative of the Myrtle and is native to Australia. It has attractive, pale silver-grey leaves and reddish stems, complimented by a profusion of pretty white flowers in mid summer. The year round, silvery foliage makes this an excellent shrub for planting as background colour in a border!
