SCARLET FLAMECallistemon viminalis ‘CC19’ 

The Scarlet Flame™ plant is an ultra-compact, fine leaf Callistemon with rustic red new growth in autumn and spring. This more compact seedling selection from Captain Cook also has beautifully delicate flowers that along with the new growth, provide a more colourful plant for a longer period.

Scarlet Flame™ Callistemon is self-cleaning after flowering. This means it doesn’t have that just finished flowering look for long.

It will grow approx. 1.5m high x 1m wide when left unpruned. Yearly pruning will keep Scarlet Flame™ Callistemon as a tight compact shrub to around 60cm – 80cm high. Pruning every second year will keep it to around 1 – 1.2m high.

Flowering
Red flowers from Sept – Nov

Best Planting Time
March – October

Position
Requires full sun to part shade and works in most soil types. Tough and drought tolerant.

Care
Water well until established and prune as required.
