Callistemon ‘Firebrand’ 

Callistemon ‘Firebrand’ was seedling raised by Austraflora Nursery, Melbourne and registered in 1980. It is thought to be a cultivar of C. citrinus.

Callistemon ‘Firebrand’ is a low spreading, dense ground cover that reaches a height of 50 centimetres with a spread of over one metre. Adult leaves are stiff and shiny with oil dots whilst new growth is soft and pink. The brushes are a rich crimson-pink and appear in profusion from spring to autumn. Remove spent brushes to encourage new growth and improve density.

Callistemon ‘Firebrand’ could be grown on embankments or as a foreground plant in garden beds. Plants, in our cold climate garden, have proved to be drought and frost tolerant.
