Willow myrtle

Agonis flexuosa

Description:

Large shrub with white flowers with draping lance shaped leafs. Native to WA. Common as a garden plant. Typically, A.flexuosa is a tree with graceful, weeping foliage which reaches 15 metres or more in good conditions. It is often smaller in cultivation and would take many years to reach its ultimate height. It has fibrous bark and lance-shaped leaves. The white, 5-petalled flowers are massed along the branches in spring and summer.

Habitat:

Our front garden.

Notes:

I thought it was a bottlebrush before it flowered.
