Callistemon ‘Little Jet’ – Bottlebrush

A small to medium shrub with a compact upright form, this great new bottlebrush variety was selected for its unique growth habit and dense foliage displays. Small red flowers appear along the stems throughout Spring, but are small and hidden amongst the leaves, and in cooler months the red tinged new growth create a fantastic contrast against the rich green of the foliage. Suitable for most soil types, the compact growth habit and foliage displays make this a great hedge or feature plant. Very hardy and low maintenance, this plant retains its compact shape without pruning and once established is tolerant of drought and frost.
