Known as the Australian Bottlebrush, in reference to its unique-shaped red flower heads, this shrub will certainly make a colour statement! It originates from Australia, and despite its impressive and flamboyant appearance, this evergreen shrub is incredibly easy-to-grow, making it perfect for gardening beginners.

The Callistemon Citinus Blush Red Shrub not only looks good, but smells good, too as its leaves release an aromatic, lemon scent when crushed.

Expect to see this shrub flower between May and June, and later again in August. Prune annually after its flowering period has finished. It isn't fussy as to whether it is placed in a pot or planted in a flowerbed, just make sure its soil is well-drained. It may need protection and shelter from frosts and strong winds.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
