Callistemon Great Balls of Fire
Vibrant long coral-red young leaves, soft grey-green older foliage; in spring the new leaves are bright pink against fresh lime green. Makes an exceptional hedge or feature planting, colourful all year round.
Resilient and salt tolerant in front-line coastal sites. Our nursery plants are not watered once they are established - we do get more rainfall on the Sunshine Coast than other parts of Australia, but they are proving surprisingly drought tolerant.

LOCATION: Full sun, salt tolerant, with an extreme resilience to a wide variety of climatic conditions except frost.
