Maintenance- Design- Planting Tips
Callistemon are very adaptable plants for our area and the hummingbirds love them. There are many cultivars of Callistemon ranging from tree-size to shrub-size to ground cover height. We haven't prune the Callistemon in our garden yet because we want it to be tall. When it gets to the size we are looking for we will use pruning to shape it and keep it shrub-sized.
The Callistemon in our photo is next to Miscanthus sinensis 'Yaku Jima' -- an excellent plant combination.
