A third variety of Melaleuca and a third pretty much completely different variety. The incana is another shrub variety of Melaleuca but it has the most wonderful little yellow flowers, though white flowered version seem to be around as well.

The Melaleuca incana is native to Western Australia but can handle most climates and can handle sandy, gravel or clay soils. It definitely prefers more sun to shade, but can handle part shade. Also looks fantastic planted with other Melaleuca varieties. Try mixing and matching a few to get the desired look for your garden.
