Bottlebrush type flowers...

An evergreen shrub form Australia producing arching branches and striking crimson 'bottle brush' type flowers. Broad lance shaped leaves and silky pinkish red new shoots make this plant all the more attractive. Height and spread is usually 1.5-1.8m/4.9-5.9ft - more compact form than splendens. Best grown in a neutral to acid, fertile soil in full sun. It will tolerate some coastal exposure, and should be protected from very severe frost.
