Callistemon Pachyphyllus from Myrtaceae family.

Callistemon pachyphyllus is a small to medium sized shrub, usually reaching around 1 metre in height. It's common name comes from the sandy, coastal heath habitat which is known as "Wallum".

Although not widely cultivated, Callistemon pachyphyllus is a hardy plant under a wide range of garden conditions. The "bottlebrush" flower spikes appear in late spring and are usually red in colour. The green flowered form is the variety viridis which is found throughout the range of the species.

The plant responds to annual fertilising after flowering and may be pruned severely if necessary. 

Many Callistemons can tolerate less than perfect drainage but usually perform best in gardens with reasonable drainage and regular availability of water.

Propagation is easy from both seed and cuttings. The green form could be expected to come true from seed.

TO GROW:

Very easy to grow - sprinkle the seed onto some soil in a pot, add moisture and a little warmth.  Germination will take a few weeks.

*** note *** Callistemon are known to hybridise so easily that when growing from seed, you may get species you don't expect to get, no matter how particular you are with the seeds!

** not available to WA, Tasmania or International buyers.
