  • Latin Name: Callistemon laevis
  • Common Name: Scarlet Bottlebrush
  • Characteristics: Callistemon laevis is a deciduous shrub with scarlet red flowerspikes that make an impressive display in the Spring and Summer months. The foliage eventually turns dark green with age, but will emerge at first with a pinkish-red tint. Due to the plants deciduous nature, it will lose its leaves later in the year, before returning with fresh new foliage in Spring.
  • Plant Advice: Callistemons should be planted in moist, well-drained soil and kept in full-to-partial-sun at the best of times. Water it regularly as it establishes in the garden and, after that period, watering it once a week will suffice as it will tolerate periods of drought.

Callistemon laevis is a deciduous shrub with a gorgeous section of flowering that forms in scarlet red flowerspikes, making an impressive display for the garden in the Spring and Summer months. The foliage will, at first, show with a pinkish-red tint, before eventually turning dark green with age. Planting Callistemons in moist, well-drained soil and placing them in full-to-partial-sun should be the way those processes are carried out. In watering, this should be done regularly as the plant begins to establish itself in the garden. Once that period has passed, you can water it once a week as the plant begins to tolerate periods of drought.

Please Note: Images are for illustrative purposes only and designed to be a representation of the item(s) being sold.
