Callistemon 'Kings Park' Standard 90cm Tall

Callistemon is a simply beautiful evergreen tree that will explode with incredible 'bottlebrush' blooms in early summer each year. 'Kings Park' bears some of the biggest flowers of Callistemon available in a fiery orange-red colour creating a really striking feature plant for patio pots and garden borders alike. Available here in eye-catching ‘standard’ form, the flowering head is held on a strong stem in a 'lollipop' shape making an incredible visual statement. They are perfect for growing in pots on your patio and to make them even more attractive, the foliage has a refreshing lemon citrus scent that will fill the air when you brush past or crush the leaves. Highly attractive to bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects, its an ideal plant for placing nearby fruit and vegetable plants. Originally raised in Kings Park in Perth Australia and very commonly grown across the Mediterranean, Callistemon are surprisingly winter hardy here in the UK, down to around -4C. In very exposed sites, a fleece cover will see them safely over-winter. They love a sun drenched position and will reward you with more spectacular blooms when you site them well
