Melaleuca armillaris (Bracelet Honey-myrtle) - This is a quick-growing, dense, small evergreen tree or shrub which can attain a maximum height of 30 feet tall and a spread to about 25 feet. It has 1 inch long, needlelike light green leaves and grey furrowed bark that peels in strips. Pale cream flowers appear in late spring through summer. It is extremely tough, being both drought tolerant and tolerant of frost, although new tip growth may be damaged. It also can handle harsh sea winds. It is hardy to about 20 degrees F.  The information presented on this page is based on research that we have conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also consider observations we have made of it growing in the nursery's garden and in other gardens we have visited, as well how it performs in our nursery crops out in the field. We will incorporate comments that we receive from others as well and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if they have knowledge of cultural information that would aid others in growing Melaleuca armillaris.
