A Bit More

The weeping variety of more than 40 varieties of Bottlebrush, Callistemon viminalis is a medium-sized tree that is twice as tall as it is wide. Standing 20-30’ tall and 12-15’ wide, the Weeping Bottlebrush has narrow, bright-green leaves that drape off the ends of long, low-hanging branches. When crushed the leaves give off a fresh scent. In the spring and summer, masses of 6” red Bottlebrush flowers cover the tree, followed by intermittent blooms thereafter. These flowers attract bees, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. This Australian native is pest and disease resistant, tolerant of heat and drought, and is cold hardy to 20° F. Plant in full sun to part shade and provide some irrigation throughout the heat of the summer. Use Callistemon viminalis as a colorful patio tree, street tree, or whereever you need a tree with a modest footprint.
