Callistemon ‘Hannah Ray’

Family: Myrtaceae

Callistemon ‘Hannah Ray’ is a form or cultivar of Callistemon viminalis (Weeping Bottlebrush).

Callistemon ‘Hannah Ray’ is a tall shrub with pendulous branches. Leaves are narrow-lanceolate and new growth is bright pink. In late spring plants produce large, bright red brushes. Honeyeaters flock to the flowers. Remove flowers as they fade. This keeps plants dense and blooming bounteously.
