Callistemon pallidus

Lemon Bottlebrush

Use these giant fast-growing evergreen shrubs as high hedges or screens, or train them as single-trunk trees. Their common name comes from their colorful bristle-like flowers that look like old-fashioned bottlebrushes. Blooms attract hummingbirds. Tolerate some frost and moderate drought at the expense of appearance, but are damaged or killed at 20º F or below. Stake young plants when training into a tree, prune to shape and thin crown. Watch for chlorosis in poor soils.
