Callistemon glaucus grows best in cool or temperate conditions, being native to the South West of Western Australia

This variety of Callistemon is a great choice for a hedge or screen. It grows best in cool or temperate conditions, being native to the South West of Western Australia. Very hardy, will handle most soil conditions and likes to have full sun. 

Growing Callistemon Glaucus

This is a great bird attracting Bottlebrush that is really quite easy to manage. Like most other Bottlebrush varieties, trim to desired shape and size after the flowering season.

I have seen this variety grow and fill out quite quickly which means if you are trying to grow a hedge, this is definitely a good starting point. 

Other Callistemon Varieties:

A great choice for anywhere along the South of Australia and it really does do particularly well in its native South West of Western Australia (between Perth and Albany).
