Callistemon Edna Walling Scarlet Willow
Callistemon salignus x C. viminalis
Weeping plants enhance any landscape. They add softness and grace to hard-edged buildings, and waving coolness to offset the glare of paving or gravel. Callistemon Scarlet Willow offers options either as a medium shrub or, with some trimming of lower branches, a small tree of an ideal streetscape size.
Soft pink-red brushes festoon the stems in spring & autumn, and light trimming will produce a flush of pink new growth. It suits cool to warm climates, likes full sun or light shade, well drained to moist soils; tolerates light frosts, and does well on the coast.
