Melaleuca Argentea | Growing and Care Guide Australia

Last week I reviewed the Melaleuca fulgens, this week I will be discussing another Melaleuca variety, the argentea or Silver leaved paperbark.

Melaleuca Argentea Features

Melaleuca argenteaGenus: Melaleuca
Species: argentea
Common Name: Silver leaved paperbark, silver cadjeput, or silver cajuput
Flower Colour: White
Foliage Colour: Silver
Growth Habit: Small Tree
Flowering: Spring & Winter

The Melaleuca argentea is one of the tree-like varieties in the Melaleuca family. What makes this variety special to me is contrast it provides when around other melaleuca varieties, given its white flowers(with a tinge of yellow and cream) and silver foliage.

This variety will grow from about 5m to around 7m in height and can function as a fantastic feature tree in any garden. For best results plant in full sun, you will not regret planting this Australian Native Plant!

Thanks to Lullfitz nursery for much of this information!
