Callistemon viminalis 'Hot Pink'

Pink Bottlebrush, Weeping Bottlebrush

Hardy Shrub

We all like to grow something a bit different, and this plant is a real beauty. It loves a sheltered corner and is early to flower, with frothy blooms in a warm shade of pink which attract plenty of bees and butterflies. Cut stems are happy indoors and make a change from run-of-the-mill cut flowers. Height: 1.5m (5'). Spread: 1m (3').

Pot up bottlebrush plants and grow them on in a cool, bright position until large enough to plant outside. Prior to transplanting, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Plant Callistemon in a sheltered position in moist, well drained, non alkaline soil in full sun. Callistemon viminalis plants are hardy down to -5°C (23°F). In particularly cold areas, bottlebrushes are best grown in a cool conservatory or planted in a patio container that can be moved to a sheltered position over winter.
Lightly prune bottlebrush shrubs in autumn after flowering. Reduce the stems to fit the available space, and remove any damaged, crossing or wayward stems. If necessary Callistemon plants will tolerate occasional hard regenerative pruning. Deadhead faded bottlebrush flowers regularly to prolong their display.
