Description

Callistemon Citrinus commonly called scarlet bottlebrush, lemon bottlebrush or red bottlebrush. It is a large evergreen upright tropical shrub that will grow to 10-15 tall in its native habitat. It is commonly grown as a specimen or hedge in frost-free areas such as southern Florida and parts of southern California. It can also be trained as a tree to 25 tall. In containers in northern climates, it more commonly is grown as a 3-5 tall shrub or trained as a small standard. Flowers feature numerous bushy bright red stamens in rounding to cylindrical spikes (to 4 long) that resemble bottlebrushes. Flowers bloom intermittently throughout the year in frost-free areas, but more typically in summer in St. Louis. Flowers are attractive to bees. Lance-shaped to narrow-elliptic leaves (to 3 long) emerge coppery before maturing to medium green. Leaves have a lemony scent when bruised, hence the species name.

Environment

Callistemon Citrinus can succeed in any soil, tolerating both water-logging and drought. It requires a fertile well-drained moisture retentive soil in full sun. They typically favor moist conditions so when planted in gardens thrive on regular watering.

Landscape Uses

Suitable for ornamental landscaping.

Trees need to be planted in full sun. Make sure there is no sudden change in temperature. Keep it in semi sunlight for a week before introducing the plant to direct sunlight.

In a pot, you will need to water the plant everyday during the summers and can cut down a bit during winters. Make sure this has a drainage hole at the bottom. For trees planted directly in the garden, you an water it once in 2-3 days for it to develop strong roots. Fertilise in the summer season only.
