Macarthur™ Callistemon viminalis ‘LC01’ PBR

Description: Macarthur™ Callistemon incorporates two of the most popular varieties on the market, Little John and Captain Cook. It features a more compact growth habit and better flower presentation. Macarthur™ Callistemon has fresh green toned foliage with very bushy and tidy growth. Responds very well to pruning after flowering.

Size: 1.8m high x 1.5m wide.

Planting Density: 1-2 plants per m², 1-1.5 plants per linear metre.

Uses: Medium sized shrub.

Position: Full sun to part shade. Tolerates most soil conditions. Tolerates frost and drought.

Care: Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Prune to shape 1-3 times a year after flowering for a hedge (this depends on your requirements, more frequent pruning will provide a tidier hedge/shape).

Where it works: QLD, NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS, SA & WA.
