Callistemon Viminalis Hot Pink
Bottle Brush Hot Pink is a colourful evergreen shrub with long frothy pink spikes in summer. It adds a pop of colour to a sheltered sunny border.

Callistemon originate from Australia and Tasmania but grow here in a sheltered, warm location. Viminalis is the weeping version of bottle brush that has more relaxed flower spikes and a softer appearance. Foliage is long, narrow, and evergreen which perfectly sets off the hot pink intensity of its flowers. With its bright pink stamens and fluffy, frothy appearance, this is a unique plant that isn’t often seen in UK gardens. Flower spikes appear early in the summer and can last through to the autumn months. If pollinated, flowers mature into hard round seed pods that cling on until the following season.

Height and Spread of Callistemon Viminalis Hot Pink
In the right location this unusual pink bottle brush can reach 1.5 metres in height and a metre in spread.

How Hardy Is Callistemon Viminalis Hot Pink
Bottle Brush Hot Pink is capable of withstanding harsh UK winters if the roots are well-drained. They need shelter and full sun to thrive and are drought hardy once established.

How To Use Callistemon Viminalis Hot Pink
This is a statement shrub for gardeners that love bright colours and usual shapes. Its pretty flower heads suit cottage gardens and the structured shape is architectural enough to suit modern courtyards. Adored by bees and butterflies this is also a good choice for wildlife-friendly spots. Hot Pink Bottle Brush is small enough and brightly coloured enough to attract pollinators to balcony gardens.

You can grow Bottle Brush Hot Pink in a well-fed and watered container to brighten a dull patio. They often grow well in containers as you can move them to a sheltered spot in bad weather more easily.  

How To Care For Callistemon Viminalis Hot Pink
Hot Pink Bottle Brush is not fussy about soil or pH and will grow in the majority of fertile, well-drained soils, but it does need a sheltered sunny spot that’s free from harsh winds and frost pockets. Against a south or west facing wall is ideal.

Water well until established and add a thick layer of mulch to the base in early spring for the most shocking hot pink flowers. There is no need to prune unless you want to restrict its height or spread.
