Kunzea baxteri ‘Solomon’s Pink’

A lovely little shrub that will brighten the winter garden with the pink bottlebrush flowers. It will also make the bird life happy with the nectar laden blooms. It grows to a neat two metres high and a metre wide, which makes it useful for low hedges and screens. Prune regularly to encourage a more dense habit if needed. Good in a sunny to a lightly shaded spot, and does well in most soils. Tolerates light frost.
