Callistemon viminalis 'Macarthur' - Macarthur Bottlebrush

A cross between a dwarf bottlebrush variety and a profusely blooming one, Macarthur Bottlebrush is a wonderful full-flowering bottlebrush in a moderate size. It grows to about 6-8 feet tall and 5 feet wide with vigorous bushy, dense growth. It has bright medium green, slender foliage and is evergreen in mild climates. It is drought and cold tolerant, but care should be taken to protect from frost. Brilliant red bottlebrush flowers appear in spring through fall. Macarthur Bottlebrush grows well in full sun to partial shade in moist, well-drained soil and is tolerant of salt and most soil conditions. It also responds well to pruning. Flowers are highly attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds.
