CALLISTEMON LITTLE JOHN

SORRY, CURRENTLY SOLD OUT. The bottlebrush tree, but in miniature, is what we have here. Little John is not an ironic name in this instance and, unlike his Sherwood Forest counterpart, he is a compact little chap, with evergreen leaves densely clothing the stems, along which appear clusters of the vibrant red mini versions of the bottlebrushes typical of callistemon in early summer. Sunny sheltered spot. Hardy to around -5C. Neutral to acid well drained soil. 3 feet. 2 litre pot.

Keep pruning quite light, just enough to keep in shape. Make sure of a well sheltered position out of cold winter winds.

Little John is variously ascribed to the species C. Citrinus and C. Viminalis. No-one seems too sure about this, but we aren't going to get too worked up about it. It is what it is.

Everything you need to know about Callistemon Little John can be found in this video, starring at one juncture a hummingbird. Not filmed in the UK, then.

Callistemon Viminalis Little John is a fairly hardy dwarf evergreen shrub with willowy leaves and red bottlebrush flowers in early summer suitable for full sun.
