Callistemon subulatus ‘Brogo Overflow’ – Bottlebrush

A lovely small sized Callistemon, useful for low hedges and screens, for attracting birds, as well as container growing. It has arching branches with small leaves, on a dense habit. While it is naturally compact, pruning after flowering will encourage an even more neat plant. It produces numerous red flowers from late winter through summer which are loved by nectar feeding wildlife. Will grow in a wide range of conditions including damp ones, at it’s best in a well drained soil with regular watering and feeding. Drought and frost tolerant.
