Previously identified as Leptospermum continentale https://canberra.naturemapr.org/sightings/3872171. What are the features to check to see which is correct?
   5 Jan 2021
Leptospemum continentale has sharply pointed leaves and the upper leaf surface is concave (creased inwards), the leaves of L. obovatum have a small downward pointing point and has somewhat paddle shaped flat leaves
