Wallum – Bottlebrush

Callistemon Pachyphyllus is a small to medium sized shrub, usually reaching around 1 metre in height. Its common name comes from the sandy, coastal heath habitat, which is known as “Wallum Bottlebrush”.

Although not widely cultivated, Callistemon Phchyphyllus is a hardy plant under a wide range of garden conditions. 

The “Bottlebrush” flower spikes appear in late spring and are usually red in colour. 

The green flowered form is the variety viridis, which is found throughout the range of the species.
