Has a narrow, dense growth habit making it ideal for tight planting areas, its foliage will naturally grow to the ground making it perfect for hedging. Vivid red bottlebrush buds start developing in spring and will flower throughout spring, summer and later again in autumn.
Prefers a full sun to part shade position, is drought and frost tolerant and can endure radiant heat. Can grow in most soil types and likes a chunky mulch. Is highly myrtle rust resistant. Prune after flowering or to keep shape.
Perfect for narrow hedging such as fence lines, along drive ways and narrow garden beds. Plant with other Australian natives such as Westringia 'Jervis Gem' and Correa alba.
Can be kept to 1.5m high x 60cm wide or left to grow to 3.0m high x 1.3m wide
