Callistemon citrinus ‘Western Glory’ – Bottlebrush

An excellent flowering large shrub, useful for informal hedging and screening. The mauve-red bottlebrush flowers are produced in abundance in late spring to summer, with spot flowering in autumn as well, and are attractive to nectar feeding birds and insects. It grows from 2 to 4 metres high and 2 to 3 metres wide if left unpruned, but can be trimmed to smaller sizes. Prune after flowering, which will encourage a fresh flush of foliage growth. It does well in a wide range of conditions, and can be used in full sun to part shade.
