Tea Tree, Australian (Melaleuca alternifolia), packet of 100 seeds

(Australian Tea Tree)
Family: Myrtaceae
Perennial evergreen tree native to Australia and hardy to 20 degrees F.  Spongy-white trunk, gently aromatic foliage and flowers like white gossamer.  Plantation grade -- source of the popular germacidal essential oil.  Nice in apot tree for indoor use--slow-growing, pleasant.  Prefers full sun and ever moist, even swampy soil.  Sow in spring, in the warm greenhouse, or anytime under lights.  Sprinkle tiny seed on top of potting soil and tamp in, then keep evenly moist until germination.  These are always amazing when they emerge, that something so large can come from something so small--its a miracle, really.  Work up in pots for a year or two before transplanting to landscape. Flowers are a frizzy, puffball sort of aromatic thing, giving way to the tiny pods filled with the ultra-tiny seeds. 
Open Pollinated 100 seeds/pkt.
