Callistemon ‘Baby Glow’ is a beautiful new small and naturally compact bottlebrush variety, perfect for smaller gardens and landscaping. The new growth is a bright pink to orange , making it a great feature plant, small hedge or topiary specimen, and it is free branching. ‘Baby Glow’ is primarily grown for the brightly coloured foliage and compact habit, as it rarely or never flowers. ‘Baby Glow’ adapts well to almost all soil types from clay to sand and tolerates less than perfect drainage, good for sun to part shade. Grows to around 1 to 2 metres tall and wide, can be trimmed to smaller sizes as needed. Responds beautifully to pruning. Feed and irrigate in warmer weather to encourage new flushes of coloured growth.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
