Work in progress, thought I'd have a go at a Melaleuca (paper bark) with real bark, pleased so far

Unfamiliar tree to the world outside of Australia I have to think.

How about a photo of a real one?

Not a bad attempt. I think useing Sedum makes the branches to straight. I wonder if there is another variety with less straight branches?

The bark looks good, is that the stuff that comes in a roll for hanging baskets?

I think polyfibre stretched over the wire armatures and dusted with suitable flock would be my attempt with leaves.
