Product Description

Introducing - Callistemon – A lemon scented Bottlebrush tree in breath-taking ‘Lollipop’ Form

Callistemon is a simply beautiful evergreen tree that will explode with incredible firework-like bottle brush blooms in early summer each year - the flowers are larger than many other varieties. Available here in eye-catching ‘standard’ form so the flowering head is held on a strong stem, well above your other plants, thereby making an incredible visual statement and making your garden really stand out from the crowd!

They are perfect for growing in pots on your patio and to make them even more attractive, the foliage has a refreshing lemon-citrus scent that will fill the air when you brush past or crush the leaves. Friendly insects and essential pollinators will flock to the nectar-laden blooms, ensuring that your fruits and vegetables get the essential ‘pollination service’ they require! So even if you are a Grow Your Own gardener with little need for flowering plants – there is no excuse here!

Originally raised in Kings Park in Perth, Australia and very commonly grown across the Mediterranean, these complete beauties have incredibly pretty pink foliage when it is young and are surprisingly winter hardy here in the UK down to -4C! In very exposed sites, a fleece cover will see them safely through the winter. They love a sun drenched position and will reward you with more spectacular blooms when you site them well.

Supplied as a 80-100cm (incl pot) tall standard lollipop-form tree in bud in spring.

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Callistemon will flower best when grown in full sun in moist but well drained soil in a sheltered position away from cold winds.
  • Outdoors, Callistemon (Bottlebrush) look great in mixed borders especially if combined with other drought tolerant plants such as salvias and lavenders.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for Callistemon Bottlebrush

  • Generally unfussy as to soil, poor soil benefits from the addition of plenty of organic matter.
  • Once established plants don't need special attention and are generally problem-free.
  • Pot-grown trees can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Dig a square planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove your Callistemon from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your tree in the hole at the same level at the pot, refill, firm, and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant.
  • Plants can also be grown in a pot using a good quality soil-based compost.

Aftercare Advice for your Bottlebrush

  • Although drought-tolerant, Callistemon requires regular watering.
  • Feed with a general-purpose liquid feed in the growing season and top dress in the spring.
  • Callistemon can get out of hand under glass so restrictive pruning may be necessary to keep their shape.
  • Hardy in the UK down to -4°C! In very exposed sites, a fleece cover and mulch will see them safely through the winter. Potted plants can be moved to a cool conservatory or greenhouse.

Pruning Advice for Callistemon

  • Lightly prune after flowering to keep them under control, cutting just behind the spent bloom.
  • Callistemons in general don't like hard-pruning, so just remove spent flowerheads immediately after flowering, or trim new growth to maintain shape.

The advert said the plant was 90cms (1 metre) high from bottom of pot to the tip of plant. When it arrived it was nearly 2 metres high. Unfortunately it was too tall for what I wanted so I had to give it to my son for his garden.

With regards to the order I sent the email to garden bargains for which I ordered on the 21st April although I received an email saying it had been despatched on the 30th April I still haven't received it that is 12 days. My other orders have been fine.

After having a previous bottle brush plant replaced with another which was not up to standard I thought this one which was for a present would be in good condition etc. I was wrong.
Product:
The plant received was not the same as that shown on the As supplied photos on the web site. Smaller bottle brushes and the plant was in poor condition.

Whilst they were keen to replace a plant that was not fit for purpose, the one that arrived was even worse. Contact was positive but disappointed that the replacement was worse. They did however refund my money.
Product:
Bent stick. broken branches, dead leaves everywhere. Crammed into a box too short for it hence the bend and broken branches.

So sorry to hear that this happened. Whilst it is definitely an isolated incident, I will follow up urgently with our Nursery Manager.
