SLIM™ Callistemon has a unique narrow growth habit
SLIM™ Callistemon viminalis ‘CV01’
Slim™ Callistemon has a unique narrow growth habit perfect for tight planting areas. It has a nice display of classic red bottle brush flowers in spring and autumn.
Slim™ Callistemon will grow approximately 3m tall x 1.3m wide, but it can be pruned down to 1.5m high and as thin as 60cm. If left to grow naturally, Slim™ Callistemon requires very minimal pruning to stay narrow and is unique in that the foliage will grow all the way to the ground, unless pruned away.
Perfect for tight planting areas including thin garden beds, along fence lines or along walls.
