Callistemon Full Standard is an evergreen tree with a long clear stem and exotic-looking red bottlebrush flowers in summer. This standard-shaped tree suits above above fence screening  and makes an excellent ornamental specimen on the lawn.

Callistemon is better known as Bottlebrush. It’s native to Australia but was brought to the UK in the 1800s where it’s grown in full sun and well-drained soils ever since.
This Standard Bottlebrush Tree has smooth, dark evergreen lance-shaped leaves and an impressive display of bright red flowers with yellow anthers in spring. Flowers cover the branches with a truly eye-catching display and last for weeks.
This version of Bottle Brush is a standard tree which means it has a single straight trunk without branches for the first 1.8 metres. The crown is rounded and can be trimmed to maintain a symmetrical shape in the winter months.
If you’re looking for an unusual tree that doesn’t get too large Standard Bottle Brush is an unusual, eye-catching choice for warm gardens.

Height And Spread of Callistemon Full Standard
Left unpruned Standard Bottle Brush will grow to a height and spread of 4 metres in 10 to 20 years. Keep the standard shap with a trim once per year. 

How Hardy Is Callistemon Full Standard
A Standard Bottle Brush Tree is hardy if it’s grown in well-drained soil in a warm area of the UK. It’s drought-tolerant but requires plenty of water to establish its roots. Please also ensure young and establishing plants are wrapped with winter fleece over the winter months to protect the foliage from cold. 

How To Use Callistemon Full Standard
A Standard Bottle Brush gives a really impressive, exotic display and is best used for evergreen screening above the fenceline or as a series of landscaping trees to accentuate avenues or pathways in larger spaces. Bottlebrush tends to fare better in southern areas of the UK, but it can grow in more northern areas if it’s planted in full sun with shelter.
A great choice for Mediterranean feel gardens, Bottle Brush is an unusual choice for both country-cottage and modern urban spaces.

How To Care For Callistemon Full Standard
Standard Bottle Brush Trees needs full sun to flower well and will struggle to bloom in shady positions. A west or south facing spot with shelter from cold winds is best. It likes well-drained sandy soil with an acid or neutral ph and will not thrive in wet conditions.
Regular pruning is necessary to maintain the standard shape.
Water well until established – lack of water is the main reason new trees fail to take. Mulch well in spring to cut down weed competition and provide nutrients for the coming year.
