Callistemon citrinus

Common Name: Melaleuca citrina, Common Red Bottlebrush

Availabilty: Out of Stock ENQUIRE NOW

The Common Red Bottlebrush is a stunning evergreen known for its' bright red bottlebrush flowers on long stems arriving in spring and summer. This pretty tree grows up to 5 metres tall (although it tends to average around 2 - 3 metres tall in most habitats) and is highly attractive to birds and insects. Ideal for use as a specimen tree or hedging, and the non-invasive root systems renders it ideal for planting near buildings or walkways. 

 

This is a type of Australian "Bush Tucker".  The leaves and blossoms of Callistemon citrinus varieties can be used to make a refreshing tea, but are not edible. Plant near the house for encouraging beautiful bird life, or it is a stunning addition to add colour or contrast to the garden. 

 

Reasonably frost & wind tolerant.  Hardy to dry conditions. Most well drained soils.  Full sun.

 

Not available to South Australia due to quarantine restrictions.
