Callistemon citrinus Jeffersii ~ Dwarf Bottlebrush

Callistemon citrinus Jeffersii grows 4-5 feet wide and up to 8 feet tall. The Dwarf Bottlebrush appreciates full sun and blooms Summer and Fall. A great plant but it seems to me a really big to be a dwarf even though the straight species plants grow more than twice the size. Callistemon Little John is about half the size of Callistemon citrinus Jeffersii but you don't get the pink flowers. Callistemon citrinus Jeffersii is reasonably tolerant of soil variability but requires decent drainage. Plants are quite drought tolerant once established. This is a great plant for attractiing hummingbirds to your garden. Callistemon citrinus Jeffersii has been hardy into the mid to low teens°s F in our gardens.
