Callistemon Little John
Callistemon viminalis ‘Little John’
A low-growing, rounded, evergreen shrub with attractive bluish-green leaves. Masses of dark red, bottlebrush flowers appear in spring and are attractive to nectar feeding birds. Ideal in mixed shrub beds and borders and in large containers. Plants respond well to pruning so can be used as low informal hedges. Prefers a sunny position. Tolerant of most soils and light frost. Provide additional water during very dry periods.
