Calistemon citrinus – Australian Bottlebrush
This is small tree, reaching 5M at maturity. Bright crimson flower spikes cover the tree in late spring.
C. citrinus is a popular plant in Tasman gardens. Hardy, drought tolerant, and reliably free flowering. Last year we had a scarlet flowered variety as our highlight plant. So this year let’s have a look at a cerise variety, C. citrinus “Hot Pink”. There are several of these around Motueka and they are, if anything, even more floriferous than the scarlet flowered variety.
