Weeping tea-tree or whitewood, Leptospermum madidum spp. madidum

The weeping tea-tree or whitewood, Leptospermum madidum spp. madidum (syn. Leptospermum longifolium, family Myrtaceae), is an attractive small weeping tree with pendulous branches and smooth bark that peels off in curly strips. The fresh bark is brownish-pink and becomes a creamy-white.

This tree is found in the scrub on the banks of rivers and streams, typically right beside the water.
