At All Green, our nursery boasts stunning display gardens carefully curated by our horticulturists. Here, you'll find arrangements of callistemons (also known as bottlebrush shrubs because of their bright red flower spikes) for sale that will inspire aspiring greenthumbs and seasoned gardeners alike.
Head to our nursery in Hoppers Crossing to see our flowering callistemon small trees and shrubs for yourself. Once there, the All Green team can help you with any questions you have. We can point you in the right direction for planting products that will enhance the health of your callistemons and any other plants in your gardening repertoire.
We understand that not everyone has the right vehicle to facilitate picking up their callistemon orders. That's why we offer a high-quality delivery service to suburbs all around Melbourne.
We can deliver your plants to your doorstep for a set fee if you live in one of the 15 suburbs surrounding our Hoppers Crossing nursery. If your site is located outside these areas, we price our service based on distance by kilometre. To find out more, visit our delivery page.
Even though they are a native Australian plant, some callistemons grow better on the cooler east coast, while others thrive under full sun and arid conditions. We source our bottlebrushes from local suppliers, who have propagated each plant, so they have adapted to Melbourne's climate and soil conditions. And though they do love the sun, these blazing beauties are extremely frost-hardy, too.
This means we can also keep our prices low, as we save on shipping costs. And not only does this benefit our customers, but it also benefits the planet. By avoiding interstate freight, we have reduced our carbon footprint.
There are dozens of different Callistemon varieties, each with its own unique features and benefits. Here are our favourites:
Crimson bottlebrush: This evergreen shrub showcases arching branches with lance-shaped leaves. The bright red flowers grow up to 10 cm long, and bloom sporadically throughout the year.
Prickly bottlebrush: Also known as mallee bottlebrush, this shrub features small, prickly leaves and small, round flowers with yellow/gold antlers. It flowers from spring to autumn.
Firebrand bottlebrush: This variety suits every climate and soil type in Australia, making it a popular choice for gardeners. It is long-flowering, and attracts wildlife like birds. It's easy to transplant and maintain.
Albany bottlebrush: This shrub showcases the largest flower among all the bottlebrush varieties. It flowers from spring through summer, and adapts to almost any soil conditions.
Mount drummer bottlebrush: Small and compact, this shrub produces stunning purple flowerheads in spring. It's highly tolerant to drought, and can be planted for screening or as a windbreak.
Lemon bottlebrush: This is a popular ornamental shrub. Its slender branches spread outwards, and the flowers are a vibrant lemon yellow colour. It's a great choice if you'd like to deviate from the usual bottlebrush red colourings.
Pruning your Callistemon helps maintain your plant's health, and makes it easier to keep it in shape. Follow these simple steps to get the most out of your plant:
Most Callistemons thrive best in sunny positions. You don't need to worry about the condition of your soil, as long as it is well drained. Once they've established, these shrubs tolerate drought and acidic soils easily. They're a low maintenance plant, but even so, you'll need to make sure you:
