Known as Pink Melaleuca, this grows fast to 15-20'T as a small tree. To use as a street tree it needs training, otherwise grows rather gnarly and twisted. Can also be sheared as hedge. Takes salt spray, poor soil, and drought. Leaves are very short and round, which gives it an almost scale-like appearance when young.
