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.
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.
