Callistemon ‘Candle Glow’ Bottlebrush

A low arching shrub with elegant silvery new growth on the grey foliage. It bears perfumed, bright lemon brushes in spring, summer and autumn, highly attractive to honeyeaters, and to small insect-feeding birds such as wrens and thornbills. Ideal for banks, open garden beds, median strips and broad landscape design where it performs reliably and always looks attractive. Frost tolerant.
