Callistemon ‘Candy Pink’ Bottlebrush

 

A medium shrub that is incredibly adaptable. It will grow on a range of soil types and positions. The large flower spikes are a lovely dark pink colour and are borne in flushes virtually all year round after a flush of new growth happens. To encourage a flush of new growth, prune into semi hardwood stems, which will also ensure more dense plant growth.
