Callistemon ‘Tangerine Dream’ – Bottlebrush

A large shrub, growing up to 3 metres high and 2 metres wide, that has eye catching bright orange flowers with gold tips through spring, summer and autumn. Tolerates dry spells and frost once established. Prune back behind the flowers once they are finished which encourages a flush of new foliage growth and a more dense habit.
