The Callistemon phoeniceus is much less encountered compared to the common Crimson bottlebrush and has beautiful red brush-like flowers which can be 15 cm wide. In the western part of Australia, the species grows on sandy soils along streams. The flowers are a good source of food for many insects, mammals and birds. The dense growth of the plant also serves as a shelter and nesting location. It’s a beautiful container plant which can withstand light frost. Provide a sunny spot.
