Description

A superb new variety bred by Graham Hutchins, a renowned specialist grower of Australasian plants. Callistemon ‘Amarette’ is distinguished by its well-branching and compact habit with lots of short, jointed growth which means even more lovely red-pink bottlebrush flowers. It also features excellent winter hardiness down to -12C.

Callistemon are exotic looking shrubs with elegant, arching branches which can be left to form a bushy shrub or trained up trellis to create a stunning wall specimen. Their stiff, evergreen, narrow foliage provides valuable winter interest and is highly aromatic, emitting a lemon scent when crushed.

Height and spread: 90 to 120cm (3-4 feet).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

How to Grow
Plant Callistemon in a sheltered position in moist, well drained, non-alkaline soil in full sun. This callistemon is suitable for growing outdoors in mild areas and coastal gardens and is hardy down to 5°C (41°F). In colder gardens, it is best grown in a cool conservatory or planted in a patio container that can be moved to a warm position over winter.
More Info
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.
