Callistemons are good value, robust shrubs able to cope with frost, pollution, and seaspray. These Australian plants have masses of flowers and are bird-attracting. This weeping, hybrid bottlebrush grows up to 6m and has bright red flower spikes up to 12cm produced abundantly in spring and early summer. The new growth is pink, while mature leaves are a mid-green. Regular pruning will maintain the shape. This plant is a nectar and seed source for birds.
