Callistemon 'Captain Cook'
DESCRIPTION: Large bright red bottlebrush shaped flowers can be seen to give a spectacular massed display of colour in spring and summer.  They are irresistible to nectar-feeding birds and insects.  Most species are frost tolerant. Callistemons are an Australian native shrub that can be pruned to shape after flowering. Captain Cook has smaller foliage and is tighter and smaller in habit than other varieties.
USE IN: In native gardens to attract birds.  Ideal as a clipped hedge and in massed plantings.
LOCATION: Very hardy and forgiving in all types of soil.  Prefers full sun but will tolerate dappled shade.
CARE:  Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Prune after flowering to promote dense growth habit and prolific blooms during the next flowering season. Plant in a lime free soil which is medium to acidic.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 1.2m H x 1m W.
PLEASE NOTE: These are tube-stock plants, with the benefit of being a young plant they will establish quickly in your garden. The average size of your plants will be 15 -25 cm in height including the pot height of 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
