Yes I bought one but it died. Don't know why, I had it in a pot.

A lovely tree, slow growing. I think my son may have one growing, I will have to check on it. It has an oak type leaf, It is one I have been thinking about, the rainforest nursery near Murwillumbah sells it as well.  Tea plant sounds interesting, is it the same as Sencha tea?   

Do you have a plum myrtle growing Mary-Ann.

very common around the Atherton tablelands but Col says they grew them as a child ( Millaa Millaa) but never knew anyone who ate them... Forbidden fruit has them and I have ordered one to be picked up at the BOGI fair along with a vanilla orchid and a Sayama Kaori tea plant !

Neither! Nor have I heard of it before now! Does the Witjuti Grub Nursery stock it?
