Agonis flexuosa, commonly known as Western Australian Peppermint, Swan River Peppermint, Peppermint and Willow Myrtle, is a species of tree that grows in the southern half of Western Australia.
Agonis flexuosa occurs mainly as a small tree, usually less than 10 metres tall, although it may grow to 15 metres. It has fibrous brown bark, and long, narrow, dull green leaves, with tightly clustered inflorescences of small white flowers in the axes. It grows in a weeping habit, and looks remarkably like the weeping willow from a distance. It is most readily identified by the powerful odour of peppermint that is emitted when the leaves are crushed or torn.
Agonis Flexuosa forms a neat specimen with single trunk and willowy branches almost to the ground. Grows quickly and resistant to drought, arid or coastal conditions.
