Leptospermum ‘Pageant” was created by Bywong Nursery outside Canberra. It is a mounding plant that gets to be about 1-1.5 m high and up to 2 m wide. Ours have been in the ground for 3 years and have remained compact and no more than 1/2 m high and 1 m wide. They can sometimes get burned in the frost but come back. They flower for many weeks reaching their peak in late October. When they aren’t in flower they are a very attractive plant.
