Callistemon Hot Pink

Hot pink flowers with hot pink bottlebrush like flowers on the terminal shoots and branches in spring.
Hot Pink behaves as all other Callistemons of our knowledge. They are easy to grow with minimal requirements. All shrubs need to be watered in well at planting and kept moist for several months until they have rooted well into the garden soil.

Prune, if needed, to shape and size and is best done following the major flowering in spring.

Mulch with any mulching material to 60mm deep to conserve moisture and to keep the soil cooler around the surface feeder roots.

In most fertile soils little supplementary fertilizer will be needed but in Hot Pink's early life an occasional dressing of any well balanced fertilizer would be helpful.
