This brand NEW bottlebrush grows in wet soils or quite dry ones, in full sun or part shade, in subtropical climates and frosty cold ones, in clay or sandy soils. With that sort of easy-going attitude you know it's won a place in your garden! Add to that the deep purple-red brushes which dangle at the ends of the arching stems, ready to lure in passing birds for a feed, and it's a definite winner.
The parent plant is found alongside Callistemon pallidus, Tristaniopsis (water gum) in the wild.
