This lovely Callistemon is a fast growing shrub 3-5m x 3-4m which responds well to pruning. The new growth is a lovely coppery colour and the hot pink flowers appear in abundance during late Spring and Summer. Prefers full sun but will grow in dappled shade and is both drought hardy and frost tolerant. One of the outstanding features of Callistemon is they are able to withstand water-logging during winter and drought conditions during summer making these plants versatile in almost all conditions.
