Callistemon pityoides 'Kosciuszko Princess'


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
You should feel grateful enough to be able to grow any of the many glorious Australian evergreen shrubs that you don't ask for more. But if you were to do so, you greedy little botanophile you, this checks those extra few boxes that make it nigh irresistible. Having its origins on the high slopes of the eponymous mountain this Callistemon is exceptionally hardy, asking little in the way of water, and providing a palisade against voracious ungulates. Needle-like foliage, compact form, and cheery yellow bottlebrushes wraps up all that substance in a perfect bow of style. This is one princess that will have her cake and eat it too, egalitarianism be damned.
