Leptospermum scoparium is among the most beautiful of the teas so we were happy to find this one surviving robustly after a 10F winter in Seattle's Washington Park. Though a shrub to under 4 ft at the time there, in our garden, with a little more heat, it quickly lept to a 8 x 4 ft specimen with deep green, burgundy tinted leaves and clouds of white flowers in spring. We kind of think of it as a purple Italian cypress for bright conditions and some summer water especially in dry climates. USDA zone 8, and possible to mid USDA zone 7.
