The most haikuable tea tree

Tea Tree (Leptospermum)

Such a fortunate distribution — the many varieties of Leptospermum aren't natives of the Old or "New" world, but live down here in Australia. They are each so beautiful, in the character of bark, twist of limbs, and delicacy of bud, bloom, and seedpods  that they'd be poetised to cliché, and bred to crass conformity.
