Callistemon, Little John bottle bush

  Exposure: Full Sun 
Color: Red 
Category : Shrubs
Sizes available: 3G


This beautiful, tropical evergreen with long weeping stems grows
quickly to a height of thirty feet with a fifteen-foot spread. It forms
a wide crown when the lower branches are pruned off. Its foliage is
narrow and bronzy green in color, especially when new growth
emerges in the spring.
Blood red, bottlebrush-like flower spikes cover this dwarf evergreen
shrub from spring into summer. In warm, temperate regions, it will
continue to bloom intermittently throughout the year. A densely
branched habit with blue-green leaves that have a citrus scent when
crushed. The versatile compact size is perfect for today's smaller
gardens. Performance better in moist, fertile, well-drained soils in full
sun. Established plants tolerate some soil dryness.
 It grows to twelve feet with a six- to nine-foot spread. Its evergreen
leaves are narrow, leathery, and produce a citrus aroma. Bright red
fuzzy, fragrant blossoms arranged on the stems in clusters appear in
early spring and sporadically throughout the summer. Its distinctive
blooms attract hummingbirds, birds, and bees. No serious insect or
disease problems. Watch for spider mites and scale, particularly on
indoor plants.
Once established, it can tolerate drought and does not like to be
. This tree is also susceptible to iron chlorosis and requires
chelated iron fertilizer as needed, and an application of ammonium
phosphate in the spring. Heavy, unnecessary pruning or hedging will
reduce flowering.
