Can you help me find a New Zealand Tea Tree? Leptospernum myrtcae I think is the one I am looking for - not a dwarf variety - it is supposed to be okay in zone 9.
thanks in advance.

You'll have difficulty finding a New Zealand Tea Tree in your gardening region (USDA zone 8) because they do not grow well in the Pacific Northwest. Tea trees are hardy to about 15F, but they won't perform well in areas with high humidity and heavy rainfall. Wish I had better news for you!
