Description

"Pink Champagne", a cultivar of the Bottlebrush Melaleuca citrina (Syn. Callistemon), graces gardens with soft, light pink flowers reminiscent of the hue of champagne during Djilba (spring). Native to Australia, this large shrub has an upright habit, serving as a beacon of colour, enticing pollinators and onlookers alike. Its grand stature paired with its elegant blooms makes it a standout choice for borders, screens, or as a singular focal point in a garden.

Incorporate "Pink Champagne" into a sunny spot in the ground, and ensure the soil is well-draining, with poor, sandy soils benefiting from an added soil conditioner. Once established, this hardy gem requires minimal water, with only occasional watering needed during intense Bunuru (summer) heat waves. For the best floral display, provide it with a native plant fertiliser in Makuru (winter) and consider a light pruning post-flowering to keep its form and encourage vigorous growth.
