The "Slim™" cultivar of the Bottlebrush Melaleuca viminalis (Syn. Callistemon) showcases radiant red flowers, making it a standout native Australian feature in any garden. As a very narrow large shrub, its slender form is particularly cherished for gardens with limited space. The added appeal of its hardy nature and minimal water requirements, especially during intense Bunuru (summer) heat waves, ensures a lush display without extensive maintenance.

For optimal growth, "Slim™" thrives best in sunny positions and well-drained soils. If dealing with sandy grounds, incorporating a quality soil conditioner will significantly enhance its well-being. Feeding it with a native-plant fertiliser during early Makuru (winter) will ensure vibrant blossoms, while occasional pruning helps in maintaining its unique slender structure.
