Sizing guide
Callistemon Captain Cook, also known as bottlebrush, is an evergreen shrub native to Australia. Callistemon Captain Cook typically grows to a size of 1.8 to 3mt in height and width, making it a medium-sized evergreen shrub.
To successfully grow this plant, follow these guidelines. Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil. Before planting, amend the soil with organic matter to improve its fertility and drainage. Water the plant regularly, especially during the first year, to establish its roots. Once established, it can tolerate dry spells.
Prune lightly after flowering to maintain its shape and encourage new growth. Fertilize with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer in early spring and late summer. Mulching around the base of the plant helps retain moisture and suppress weeds. With proper care, Callistemon Captain Cook will reward you with its striking red bottlebrush-like flowers and attractive evergreen foliage.
