Callistemon citrinus ‘Endeavour’ – Bottlebrush

 

One of the best red bottlebrushes on an upright and compact shrub. Very large flowerheads in spring and autumn on a very adaptable plant. Bird attracting. Prune behind the old seed heads to encourage an even more dense habit, and can be cut back hard if it gets untidy. Good in full sun to part shade, coastal gardens. Can take dry to very moist soil, at its best in well drained spots with regular watering. Frost tolerant.
