Walking the dog... Tea Tree (I think)

Walking the dog in the park earlier ... here's some tea tree, I think.

It reminded me of something I started last year ... windswept Kunzea.

Yeah, I know they are small and pathetic'ish seedlings but wait a few years. :palm:

Inspiration can come from many places.

The trees your dog is inspecting look like Leptospemum laeviagatum - Coastal teatree. The trunks are great - something to aspire to though it may take some time for mine to reach that stage. These are quite easy to grow as bonsai but I hear they are very difficult to transplant so probably not worth knocking off wild trees. Tubestock is readily available and they do grow quite quickly.

Just love seeing how gnarly and beautiful our very own trees can get. Thanks!
