Callistemon ‘Ted Knight’ – Bottlebrush

This is one of the few white flowered bottlebrush available for gardeners. It is an upright shrub that flowers profusely in spring and then flowers again in summer and autumn with this repeat flowering being another useful attribute. It can be grown as a feature or screen plant but can also be trimmed into a formal hedge. It is an extremely adaptable plant that will thrive in most soil types and should be lightly trimmed immediately after flowering.
