Callistemon ‘All Aglow’ – Bottlebrush


Callistemon All Aglow is a stunningly beautiful bottlebrush that is highlighted by luminous-pink new growth and bright red brushes with a pinky undertone. All Aglow is an upright shrub growing to around 2.5m tall. It is naturally compact and free branching and is a perfect size for today’s smaller gardens. It also makes an excellent hedge plant as every time it is cut, it will produce a flush of the brightly coloured new growth – it can be cut as hard as you like to form the hedge you require. Like all Callistemon, All Aglow is bird-and-bee-attracting and provides natural shelter for smaller birds. Expect full flowering in the plant’s second year. A good adaptable shrub.
