An Austrailian beauty! Large bushy shrub with narrowly dark green leaves to 15cm long, and bright deep red flowers that seem to explode outwards from the main stem. They look like a Bottle Brush, giving the reason why they have this common name. Great in pots, as Callistemon is not totally hardy, so you can put it in a sheltered spot over Winter.
