Callistemon salignus ‘Perth Pink’ – Bottlebrush

Perth Pink is double the colour value- with pink flowers mainly in spring and autumn, and the new foliage growth is flushed pink as well. A trouble free shrub to 4 metres, this is a great hedge or screen plant which can be left to grow unpruned, or trimmed to tidy the growth or decrease the size if needed. Pruning after the blooms have finished will encourage new growth and the next flowering will be improved.
Does best in a well drained soil and with some watering in dry spells. Fertilise in spring if desired with a good general purpose or native fertiliser. Best in temperate and Mediterranean climates. A great bird attracting shrub.
