The "Purple Splendour" cultivar of the Bottlebrush hybrid of Melaleuca citrina (Syn. Callistemon) boasts deep pink blooms that transform gardens into a lively spectacle. Native to Australia, this large shrub not only entices with its vibrant flowers but also demonstrates commendable hardiness. For garden enthusiasts looking for a touch of opulence, its blossoms peak during Djilba (spring) and lend an exotic aura to landscapes.

When it comes to planting "Purple Splendour", select a sunny spot and enrich poor, sandy soils with a top-tier soil conditioner. Once established, its water requirements drop considerably, needing occasional watering mainly during the high heats of Bunuru (summer). Fertilise in early Makuru (winter) with a blend suitable for native plants, and after its flowering season, a gentle pruning can help maintain its splendid form and encourage fresh growth.
