Callistemon 'Kings Park Special'
One of the better cultivars of Callistemon. Slightly weeping foliage habit with masses of bright red bottlebrush flowers in spring and summer.
Prefers a moist well drained soil in a sunny to partly shaded position. Tolerates drought, coastal areas and wet boggy soils. Prune lightly after flowering to maintain compact growth. For best results fertilise with a long term slow release fertiliser in early spring.
This versatile native plant is ideal for screening, and is perfectly suited to the home garden. It is tolerant of most conditions once established and so is useful for commercial sites. Its fantastic flowers are bird attracting.
Can be kept to 2.5m high x 1.0m wide or left to grow to 5.0m high x 2.0m wide
