Callistemon Laevis. Scarlet Bottlebrush.
The Callistemon Laevis, more commonly known as the Scarlet Bottlebrush is an evergreen shrub or tree with the most extraordinary exotic looking showy flowers. Large bright red spikes between 10-15cm, with yellow-gold anthers are shaped like a bottlebrush and are produced in abundance in late spring and through summer which contrast beautifully against dark green lance shaped leaves. These tropical looking trees really bring a feeling of the mediterranen and give a 'wow' factor.
Hardy in coastal and milder parts of the UK it can easily be grown as a conservatory plant or grown outside through Spring and Summer and brought into a bright indoor position through winter.
