As its name suggests, the Crimson Bottlebrush is a shrub that sports bright red flowers originating from Australia.
The Bottlebrush is a good option for an ornamental shrub in the garden.
The branches themselves tend to arch a bit as the plant grows.
The crimson bottle brush is also known as Melaleuca citrina, Callistemon citrinus, or Callistemon citrinus ‘Splendens.’ There are in fact over 50 types of Bottlebrush. The plants we have are grown from seed and while we expect it to be Crimson in colour there is a possibility that it may be Lemon coloured.
They Crimson Bottlebrush we have are two years old and very healthy and should flower next year.
The plant we supply is between 18 inches and two feet tall, the taller ones which are at least two years old will be pruned a little this year to make them more bushy.
