Callistemon viminalis Captain Cook, better known as 'bottlebrush' due to its bright red flowers that appear similar to a large red brush. The flowers will become roughly 15 cm large whereas the plant itself will grow up to a size of 1,5 metres tall and 1,2 metres wide. Bottlebrushes are easy to maintain and thus well suited for every garden. Pruning is not a problem, just like dry spells. It is easy to keep in a pot, border or in full soil. Its only weakness is its hardiness; it requires protection or shelter during frost.
In short, Callistemon viminalis Captain Cook is a real eye catcher that will cheer up every garden, whilst being an easy to maintan plant.
