Sizing guide

Callistemon citrinus, commonly known as Crimson Bottlebrush, is a beautiful evergreen shrub native to Australia. It features narrow, dark green leaves and stunning crimson-red, bottlebrush-like flowers that bloom in spring and intermittently throughout the year. This hardy plant thrives in full sun and well-drained soil. It is drought-tolerant once established and attracts birds and pollinators to its nectar-rich flowers. Pruning after flowering helps maintain its compact shape. With its vibrant flowers and attractive foliage, Callistemon citrinus adds a splash of color to gardens, making it a popular choice for landscaping and as a focal point in borders or containers.

To grow Callistemon citrinus, plant it in well-drained soil and full sun. Water regularly until established, then it becomes drought-tolerant. Prune after flowering to maintain shape. It typically grows to a size of 6 to 10 feet (1.8 to 3 meters) in height and width, forming a medium-sized, evergreen shrub.
