'Kanuka Kunzea ericioides grows to 5-7 metres or more in height.
It is fast growing and has an erect habit.
Kanuka occurs throughout New Zealand.
It will grow in full sun or semi-shade.
Kanuka is very hardy, tolerant of drought, frosts and poor soils.
Kanuka is faster growing and taller growing than Manuka - Leptospermum scoparium.
Kanuka has white flowers 4-5 mm, which appears in abundance once a year in mid summer, and generally there are no seed capsules except briefly in late summer.'
