Calothamnus quadrifidus – One Sided Bottlebrush

Like its namesake and close relative, the bottlebrush (Callistemon species), One Sided Bottlebrush combines toughness with attractive flowers and foliage. It makes a great hedge or general garden shrub that will attract nectar-feeding birds such as honey eaters. All it needs is a light trim to keep it flowering well and in a compact shape.
