Callistemon Citrinus - Bottlebrush Plant
Callistemon or Stiff Bottlebrush is an Australian native shrub that can get 3-4ft tall with a 4-5ft spread at maturity. This Bottlebrush has a bushy growth habit with stiff stems and stiff linear shaped leaves and will do best on a well-drained soil. In the summer this Callistemon will bloom sporting spectacular bright red bottlebrush-like flowers that are great for attracting butterflies.
Actually the red that is seen is the showy stamens, as the petals are small and inconspicuous. After bloom the Bottlebrush will have button-like seed capsules.
It is best to prune just below these seed capsules after flowering to maintain a bushy habit.
