Description

Plant this magnificent, sun-loving evergreen against a warm wall or in a container on a sun-baked roof terrace or patio. Callistemon laevis has dark green, stiff, narrow foliage which provides valuable winter interest. It is also highly aromatic, emitting a lemon scent when crushed. From April to August, Callistemon laevis puts on a stunning display of cylindrical flower spikes, where the colourful parts are not the petals but the spectacularly long tufts of crimson stamens. Callistemon make wonderfully exotic specimens for mild and coastal gardens. In cold northern gardens they can be grown in a container and over-wintered in a frost-free place. Maximum height: 8m (26 foot), Spread: 4m (13 foot).

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.
