Kunzea is a genus of shrub in the myrtle family Myrtaceae described as a genus in 1828.[1][2] They are native to Australia, with two species extending to New Zealand. They are found throughout the Australian continent with most species occurring in southwestern Western Australia.[2][3] In appearance they resemble the closely related Callistemon genus, but differ in the arrangement of the stamens.

The genus was named after German naturalist Gustav Kunze, professor of botany in Leipzig.[4]

Several species of Kunzea are weeds in the fynbos regions of southern South Africa
