Weeping Bottlebrush Tree Seeds (Callistemon Viminalis) 30+Seeds
Weeping Bottlebrush that is well branched and can grow as tall as 8 to 10 feet and as wide as 3 to 4 feet. It can be trimmed to be kept at 5 feet tall and as narrow as 2 feet wide with foliage kept all the way to the ground with a prolific display of red bottlebrush flowers in spring through fall. Plant in full sun to part shade in most any soil and give occasional to infrequent irrigation - fairly drought tolerant once established. Should prove hardy to at least 20 °F. This would be a great choice where a colorful tall plant with dense cover is need for a tight space - a great replacement for Eugenia (Syzygium australe). Callistemon viminalis is native to New South Wales and Queensland, Australia where it typically occurs on the edge of creeks and streams but it has long been used in our mediterranean climate in drier situations. This selection is the result of crossing Callistemon viminalis 'Captain Cook' with an un-named Callistemon viminalis selection at the Plant Breeding Institute in Cobbitty New South Wales, Australia in in 2005. This plant was selected for the combination of tall plant height, columnar shape, dense growth habit, and both longer and wider leaves.
