Bottlebrush - Callistemon Little John
'Little John' named for its more compact and dwarf nature compared to some other Callistemon varieties. It typically reaches a height of around 2 to 3 feet, making it a perfect choice for smaller gardens, borders, or even container planting. This popular native produces vibrant, crimson-red flower spikes that resemble miniature bottle brushes. The flowers are not only visually appealing but also attract pollinators like bees and hummingbirds. Like many Australian natives, 'Little John' is adapted to drier conditions. Once established, it's relatively drought-tolerant, making it a good choice for water-wise landscaping.
