Callistemon viminalis `Hannah Ray`

`Hannah Ray` is an old favourite having been tried and tested in Australian gardens for decades. It is well suited to a wide range of climates and soils conditions. The leaves are shortish, narrow and green, but the real show is when `Hannah Ray` flowers. The vibrant red bottle brush flowers are produced towards the tips of the newer growth and are often pendulous and make a great display in spring and again in late summer to early autumn. It can formal a formal hedge if trimmed regularly but this often reduces the flowering hence we recommend `Hannah Ray` as an informal hedge with occasional trimming to shape after flowering.
