Callistemon

Callistemon or Bottlebrush are evergreen shrubs originating from Australia. The flower spikes of the Bottlebrush form in Spring and Summer and are made up of a number of individual flowers. The pollen from these flowers forms on the tip of a long coloured stalk called a filament. The filaments are usually yellow or red. The leaves on many of the Bottlebrush are considered to be very ornamental. The leaves are often coloured and in some species they are covered with fine, soft hairs. Callistemon grow well in most soils but do not tolerate highly alkaline soil. To encourage new season growth dead head after flowering.
