Thyme Honey-Myrtle

The Thyme Honey Myrtle (Melaleuca thymifolia), is a plant in the myrtle family and is native to eastern Australia. It is often noticed in spring, with its attractive, purple flowers and is one of the most commonly cultivated melaleucas.

A fragrant shrub, it usually grows to about 1.0 m (3 ft) tall, has corky bark and slender, wiry stems. We saw them in the Olympic Park in Sydney.
