The Kunzea affinis is a small shrub which grows to roughly 1.5m in height. It usually grows with an upright nature but can be trained to grow more bushy if you desire.

Growing Kunzea Affinis

Gently cut the growing tips while it is growing to encourage this Kunzea to become more bushy. The Kunzea affinis is native to the south of Western Australia and as such prefers a temperate to cool climate.

It will grow well in a sunny to part shade position in a well draining soil. Is very hardly to a harsh summer sun and can also withstand mild frosts in the winter.

For more Kunzea varieties, check out Kunzea Baxteri and Kunzea Ambigua. Very good plant to mix in group plantings with Leptospermum or Melaleuca plants.
