Coastal Honeymyrtle

Coastal Honeymyrtle 1

There is plenty of this small melaleuca shrub growing around Perth and it is currently covered in buds. It is called Coastal Honeymyrtle (Melaleuca systena) and we have seen it recently at Bold Park, Buckland Hill and Minim Cove.

Its flowering season is Aug-Dec, and again in Feb-March. If you look around, you’ll find a few of the pale yellow flower heads already.
