Callistemon viminalis HOT PINK 'KKHO1'

Bright pink flowers for this Callistemon, more hardy than other classic varieties.

More details

Description

Like all the 'bottle brushes', the flowers are grouped in a characteristic way like flower stalks at the end of the branches; the long stamens give the shrub its ornamental appeal.
It is scarlet pink, a complimentary colour to the traditional varieties, the flowers bloom from the end of May and in June for a month and more discretely in the autumn if they are cut under the wilted flowers.
The red coloured young shoots make room for fine narrow grey-green foliage, which can persist all winter. HOT PINK is hardier than other classic varieties.
The shape of this Callistemon selection originating from South Africa is rounded and well ramified and grows up to to 2 meters in height in areas with favourable climate.

Care

Water regularly in summer to obtain a better branched and flowering shrub.
Cut the stems systematically just under their flower to avoid fruit formation and to favour the growth of new shoots.
