Bottlebrush, Callistemon spp.

All varieties we stock have red blooms. The flowers resemble the shape and texture of a “bottlebrush” which emerge several times through warmer months. Low maintenance with few pest problems. Red Cluster is a popular variety with tighter growth and a shorter overall mature height than others. A weeping variety is available as well as some other varieties. Hardy to about 24°F.
