CallisFirebrand.JPG (36233 bytes)Callistemon Austraflora Firebrand is an unusual Bottlebrush because it develops into a mounded ground cover rather than an upright shrub. It is a cultivar of Callistemon citrinus. “Firebrand” grows well at Yallaroo and presents us with bright red brushes in late spring and early summer. A colourful plant for inclusion in a large rockery or as a foreground plant in shrubberies. Remove the spent flowers to maintain dense foliage and bounteous blooming. Because it is a cultivar propagation must be from cuttings that strike readily.
