Description

"Perth Pink", a cultivar of the Bottlebrush and a hybrid of Melaleuca saligna (Syn. Callistemon), proudly showcases bright pink blossoms that take centre stage during Djilba (spring). Native to Australia, this large shrub is renowned for its prolific flowering, making it an utterly unique and standout addition to any garden. Its commanding size combined with its vibrant colouration makes it perfect for creating striking garden backdrops, natural screens, or even as a centrepiece.

When placing "Perth Pink" in the ground, a sunny position and well-draining soil are key; for those working with sandy soils, adding a high-quality soil conditioner can work wonders. While being a hardy plant that demands minimal additional water, during the peak temperatures of Bunuru (summer), a little extra hydration might be appreciated. To ensure continued vigour and radiant blooms, feed it with a native plant fertiliser during Makuru (winter) and consider a light prune post its flowering season to maintain its shape and health.
