The "Endeavour" cultivar of Bottlebrush, scientifically named Melaleuca citrina (Syn. Callistemon), is an upright and compact large shrub renowned for its brilliant red blooms. Native to Australia, this splendid plant graces gardens with its vibrant brushes during Djilba and Kambarang (spring and early summer). Embodying resilience, it requires minimal supplemental watering once established, save for the hotter stretches of Bunuru (summer).
For garden enthusiasts seeking to highlight its native allure, it's best to plant the "Endeavour" directly in the ground. Especially in sandy terrains, enriching the soil with a quality soil conditioner is pivotal to foster its robust growth. Thriving in sunny spots, initial regular watering will help it take root and flourish. To amplify its radiant flowering, a touch of native plant fertiliser in Djilba (spring) will do wonders. After its blossoming season in Kambarang (late spring), a gentle prune ensures it maintains its striking form.
