Maximum Pinkitude is yours with Perth Pink - glowing pink bottlebrush flowers in spring and again in autumn, and in between the new leaf growth is pink too! We reckon that as well as flocks of native nectar-loving birds, you might see some flamingos landing in your garden, mistaking Perth Pink for one of their own. We love Perth Pink for its bright flowers, bright new leaf colour, large size
Callistemon salignus 'Perth Pink'DESCRIPTION: Hot-pink small bottlebrush shaped flowers cover this native shrub in spring and autumn. Pink new leaf growth gives interest through the rest of the year. Benefits from being pruned to shape while young, and after flowering.
USE IN: In native gardens, coastal landscapes to attract nectar feeding birds. For year-round colour, and for tall informal privacy hedges and windbreaks.
LOCATION: Plant in well drained soil in a full sun to partly shaded position in the garden. Grows best in well-draining soil with some watering during dry periods. Tolerates drought and waterlogging once established. Not frost-hardy but might come through a light overnight frost.
CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Can be left unpruned or trim as required to tidy the growth or reduce size. Prune after flowering to encourage new growth and to improve next flowering period.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 2 - 4 m H x 3- 4 m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants are tube-stock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide
