Melaleuca Snow Bird

Post by Muhammad Arif Khan » November 8th, 2015, 8:27 am

A few years ago I bought some quite expensive plants as the advertised pictures were too tempting, one of them was;
Melaleuca Snow Bird

Mine is blooming for the last three years

Since then I have seen other mature plants in Lahore performing like mine.
Draw your own conclusions.

The tree looks so beautiful, but why do you expect a foreign tree to grow and blossom like a native tree?

Regards.

Brig Sahib,

Give this plant another chance for an year and hopefully it ought to perform. Incidentally Adnan Sardar is selling this plant at Rs 3000.

As some one rightly said that "Opinion of a seller doesn't matter as his job is to sell a plant irrespective of its traits". Same applies here. A business man would never tell you flaws in his products unfortunately. My advise to new comers is to research before trying a new plant instead of relying on seller only.

It appears that the plant in picture is regularly pruned the shape of my plant is altogether different. :?

sir, i am no expert in the said category, but as the look of the plant tells me its age :(roughly 20 years plus). you will have to wait till your fruit of patience ripens. tree seems to be native of Australia and resembles bottle brush family. a visit to Ahmad pur east to sadiqabad, you might find close relative of the plant..
