Melaleuca fulgens – Scarlet Honey Myrtle

The brightly coloured bottlebrush-shaped flowers and the fine foliage are the key features of this excellent Australian plant. Use it as a feature plant where its showy flower displays can be best admired. The waxy flower buds are also very attractive. Prune it lightly after flowering as heavy pruning can remove next year’s flower buds.
