Melaleuca hypericifolia is one of those plants that is so undemanding and yet beautiful with or without flowers. It is a very similar flower to the Callistemon. Like the Callistemon it is suitable to make into hedges or windbreaks, though mine is stands solitary near the front entrance. The birds love it. I like the way this plant has a gentle colour and is more unassuming than the Callistemon, that shouts to be noticed.
