I love the more unusual greyish green foliage on this bottle-brush which compliments the mauve flowers appearing in Spring and Summer. It is a prolific flowerer and like most Callistemon will grow almost anywhere. We have two in our garden, one in sun and one in part shade and both are growing as well as the other. A drought and frost hardy shrub 2-3m x 2-3m tolerating water-logging and coastal conditions. Ideal for windbreaks, screens, hedging.
