Locally grown Callistemons

Even though they are a native Australian plant, some Callistemons grow better on the east coast, while others thrive in more 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.

This means we can also keep our prices low, as we save on shipping costs. And, not only does this benefit our customers, it also benefits the planet. By avoiding the use of interstate freight, we have reduced our carbon footprint.

Frequently asked questions

Which is the best variety of Callistemon to plant in my garden?

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.

How do I prune my Callistemon?

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:

  • Only prune once the flowers have faded
  • Make your cuts just below the tip of the stem
  • Remove forking or intersecting branches
  • Only remove interior branches if damaged or diseased

How do I take care of my callistemon shrub?

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:

  • Water the plant regularly while it is young
  • Fertilise it once a year until it matures fully
  • Cover the base of the roots with a layer of high quality mulch to slow the evaporation of water

Do you deliver Callistemons around Melbourne?

Yes, we can deliver Callistemons to your doorstep. We have no minimum on plant orders, and in certain cases, we can facilitate same day deliveries.
