Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Leptospermum scoparium (Manuka or Tea tree or just Leptospermum) is a shrub or small tree native to New Zealand and southeast Australia. Evidence suggests that L. scoparium originated in Australia before the onset of the Miocene aridity and dispersed relatively recently from Eastern Australia to New Zealand. It is likely that on arrival in New Zealand, L. scoparium became established in limited edaphically suitable areas until the arrival of Polynesian man whose fire and forest-clearing brought about the low-nutrient-status soils for which it was pre-adapted in its homeland.
