So this is the plant the bees collect from to make Manuka Honey? LikeLiked by 1 person Reply This is a double-flowered garden form of the same plant that bees get manuka honey from. Where I grew up in Northland, the wild manuka was widespread, with single-flowers that occurred in white and also quite often in various shades of pink. My father used to grow them from the wild and had a roadside hedge of varying colours. I can’t remember now if he took cuttings, grew from seed or both.
