Melaleuca lanceolata

The iconic tree on the Southern Mornington Peninsula, Melaleuca lanceolata is best known for its tall, twisted grey trunks as seen along the Blairgowrie foreshore. A common plant on the Peninsula golf courses and residential properties from Portsea to Rye, many of the older trees have been dated as pre-European settlement (over 250 years old), and many much older than that! Can be used as a wonderful screening tree and upper storey in any coastal landscape. Fine foliage is enhanced by creamy flowers in spring and summer.
