Leptospermum laevigatum, commonly known as the coastal tea tree, is a woody shrub or small tree of the myrtaceae family native to eastern Australia. Salt-resistant and very hardy, it is commonly used in amenities plantings and coastal plantings. It has also been used in Western Australia where it has become a weed. This species is also planted along the Central Coast of California in the United States to stabilize sand. It is known there as the Australian teatree.
