Sounds like a good candidate! Leptospermum laevigatum (Australian Tea Tree) is a large, evergreen shrub or small tree that, with age, develops a structurally beautiful and sculptural spreading, twisting and curving trunk and branches which have the tendency to arch along the ground. It grows 15-30 feet high and 20-30 feet wide with small, pointed oblong, dull green leaves on gracefully pendulous branches. Small rose-like white flowers appear in spring. Plant in full sun. It is drought tolerant. Protect from hot, dry winds. Hardy to around 25 degrees F.
