Callistemon hybrid ‘Mary MacKillop’ – Bottlebrush

A dense lightly weeping medium shrub with glossy leaves and lettuce green new growth. Plant as specimens or groups in gardens or streetscapes, as hedges, and looks spectacular in a large tub. A dense plantation along a boundary or for screening will give a brilliant flowering display over many months, and supply a constant flush of nectar for honeyeaters. It is a cross between Callistemon viminalis ‘Hannah Ray’ and Callistemon citrinus ‘Endeavour’
