Callistemon 'Red Alert'


A compact seedling selection of Callistemon ‘Kings Park Special’, this Australian bottle-brush was selected for its abundance of prominent and vivid red new growth which is present for approximately two months in spring and two month in autumn. Responds well to pruning so useful hedge or screen or let it be and it will make a nice specimen in any low maintenance garden. Red Alert™ needs less pruning to establish a hedge and is relatively disease-free so it makes for a great low maintenance alternative to Photinia (“red tip”). Best in Zones 9-11. It is salt tolerant too!
