Scarlet Flame™ - Native Shrubs and Groundcovers Range

Description

Scarlet Flame™ is an ultra-compact, fine leaf Callistemon with rustic red new growth in autumn and spring. This more compact seedling selection from Captain Cook also has beautiful delicate flowers that along with the new growth, provide a more colourful plant for a longer period.

Scarlet Flame self cleans after flowering. Meaning it doesn’t have that just finished flowering look for very long.

It’ll grow to approx. 1.5m high x 1m wide when it’s left unpruned and when Scarlet Flame is pruned yearly, it will stay in a compact form at approx. 60-80cm high. It’ll reach 1-1.2m high when it’s pruned every two years.
