Melaleuca trichophylla is a shrub which is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. Its pink or purple flowers appear from August to December (late winter to early summer) in its native range.
It usually grows to between 0.15 and 1 metre in height and occurs on sandplains and hillsides.
The species was first formally described by botanist John Lindley in 1839 in A Sketch of the Vegetation of the Swan River Colony.
