Key to Tasmanian Dicots

    Melaleuca pustulata (Myrtaceae) 1:205

Melaleuca pustulata is an uncommon, medium to large native shrub or small tree with narrow alternate leaves. The flowers are usually yellowish.  It is very similar to M. ericifolia. The most obvious difference is the habitat - M. ericifolia grows on the shores of estuaries and river banks, and occasionally in boggy areas in wet places, whereas M. pustulata grows in dry heathland near the east coast (rarely along stream banks). It grows in dry areas near the east coast.
