The Bottlebrush "Green John™", derived as a Melaleuca viminalis (Syn. Callistemon) hybrid, is a standout with its vibrant red flowers, prominently blooming during Djilba (spring). Native to Australia, this dense small shrub showcases brighter green foliage compared to other bottlebrush varieties, making it a captivating choice for gardens desiring a splash of lively hues. With its sturdy nature, "Green John™" has a knack for thriving with minimal water, needing only supplemental hydration during fierce Bunuru (summer) heat waves.
For best growth, plant "Green John™" directly in the ground, especially in sun-drenched spots. In areas with sandy soil, enriching with a top-notch soil conditioner will provide a boost to its overall health and vitality. It appreciates a dose of native plant fertiliser in Djilba (spring) to maintain its vigour. If pruning is on the agenda, a light trim after its flowering period in Kambarang (late spring) will do wonders.
