Saltwater Paperbark (Melaleuca cuticularis)

Saltwater Paperbark (Melaleuca cuticularis)

The Saltwater Paperbark is native to the south west of Western Australia.


This Myrtle family member can be found different from its papery bark which is white in colour.


Although the Melaleuca cuticularis can grow over 10m tall, it is usually found more shrub like and only a few metres tall.


In Spring, and into Summer, the creamy coloured flowers appear at the ends of the branches, normally in groups of three.


Cuticularis is from the Latin cuticula, used when describing the bark falling off the trunk and branches.
