BETTER JOHNCallistemon viminalis ‘LJ1’ 

Better John™ Callistemon has been bred from Little John. It’s a native shrub that is quicker to establish, easier to grow and has better foliage colour than Little John, all while keeping Little John’s great small height.

Better John™ Callistemon flowers from mid to late spring and its mature foliage is blue-grey, but its new growth will have a silver tone due to the soft hairy texture.

In roadside conditions, Better John™ Callistemon will be a little smaller, but in well maintained conditions, it will reach full height potential.

Better John™ Callistemon grows 60cm -1.2m high x 60 – 90cm wide depending on conditions.

Best Planting Time
March – October

Position
Requires full sun to part shade and works in sandy to well drained soils. Better John™ Callistemon is drought tolerant and has low to moderate frost tolerance.
