|Kunzea ericoides Kanuka, white tea tree|
Kunzea ericoides Kanuka
The very light seed of Kanuka is wind dispersed and produced in abundance. These plants are colonisers of bare ground.
They form an important stage in the succession of the bush and provide an important nursery for other larger, long lived, species.
Light is needed for germination.
Sow finely on a fine seeds raising mix.
How do you tell the difference between Kanuka and manuka?
If you wish to learn more about native plants I suggest one of these natural history books from fishpond
