Callistemon All Aglow is a stunningly beautiful bottlebrush that is highlighted by pink to orange new growth and bright pink brushes with red undertones. 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. Tolerates medium frost once established, any damaged foliage can be cut back and the plant will regrow fresh new growth.
