Blooming NZ Tea Tree

Today I photographed this NZ Tea Tree bonsai which is in full bloom. A Leptospermum Scoparium Civic Pride, it was developed from ordinary nursery stock about 11 years ago. The flowers have cabbage petals and is a mixture of white and purplish pink. I once counted over 5,000 flowers on a larger tea tree bonsai. So I presumed this one must have thousands of flowers as well.  Enjoy. CJ
