Callistemon Kings Park Special - 300mm


Description: Average Size:
Height: 3m - 4m
Width: 1.5m - 2m

Slightly weeping branches bear a mass of bright red, bottlebrush flowers in spring and summer with spot flowering in autumn. The flowers attract nectar feeding birds.

One of the most ornamental of Callistemons. Ideal for screening and hedging plant, useful for roadside and commercial sites.

Prefers a moist, well drained soil in a sunny to partly shaded position. Tolerates drought, coastal areas and wet, boggy soils.

Prune lighlty after flowering to maintain compact growth. Apply a low phosphorus fertiliser in spring and autumn.

Cultivate soil before planting. Dig hole twice the width of the container. Remove plant from container and place into the hole so the soil level is the same as the surrounding ground. Fill hole firmly and water in well even if the soil is moist.
