M.glomerata.jpg (43261 bytes)Melaleuca glomerata: is a member of the Myrtaceae family and is native to the dry areas of Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
Melaleuca glomerata is said to be an erect shrub or small tree. In our garden, Melaleuca glomerata has only reached a metre in height in eight years.
The leaves are linear and about five centimetres long. In spring, plants produce large numbers of small, cream, globular flower heads.
Our specimens fade into the background until spring when they produce their eye-catching floral display.
Melaleuca glomerata is said to be suitable for arid areas and is useful for saline soil revegetation.
We grow our specimens in the foreground of our dense shrubberies.
Propagate from seed and cuttings.
