Macarthur™ Callistemon viminalis 'LC01' PBR

Macarthur™ Callistemon is a mid sized, mass flowering dense shrub. There is a real gap in the market. You have little John or Better John for small bottle brushes, and many that get bigger, but few that fit that dense mid sized callistemon category.

Macarthur™ Callistemon is a cross between the popular Little John, and captain cook varieties. Macarthur™ Callistemon  not only flowers more profusely, but has the dense form you need from a bottle Brush. It works well in humid or hot dry climates, and also does well in frost. A prune every three to 4 years will help it keep tidier.
