The first official Melaleuca fact: the scientific name is Melaleuca alternifolia. There are other types of Melaleuca, but this site is dedicated to Melaleuca alternifolia. Occasionally I may add facts about Melaleuca quinquenervia as well.
Okay. Okay. Okay! So Jim Jonders isn't my real name, but I am not here to build a big fan base and become famous, so it is my alias. I just want to share the facts about a tree I love. The tea tree, scientifically known as Melaleuca Alternifolia.
