Details

Callistemon salignus - willow bottlebrush
DESCRIPTION:  Creamy-white small bottlebrush shaped flowers and red-pink new leaf growth gives interest through the year. Bushy native plant with slightly weeping habit, that will grow into a single-trunk tree with papery white bark. Benefits from being pruned to shape while young, and after flowering.
USE IN: In native gardens, bog gardens and coastal landscapes to attract nectar feeding birds.  Perfect for native hedging or allow to grow naturally into a tall tree.
LOCATION: Plant in well drained soil in a full sun to partly shaded position in the garden. Tolerates drought and waterlogging once established. Not frost-hardy. Roots can be invasive when full-grown, so plant at least 10m from buildings if allowing plants to grow to full size.
CARE:  Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Prune after flowering and apply a slow release native fertiliser to promote healthy leaf and prolific blooms during the next flowering season.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 10m H x 5m W as tree.
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.
