• Calliatemon citrinus 'Splendens'

    Calliatemon citrinus ‘Splendens’

    Callistemon citrinus ‘Splendens’: Wonderfully showy bottle brush growing in the border to the south of the front range. Multiple red filaments encircle the base of the current season’s growth

  • Callistemon pityoides: insignificant looking plant to the east of the entrance to the peat and rock house E & S.E. Australia. Lemon yellow filaments.

Both flowering well in these sheltered locations, combined with the good autumn of 2006 to ripen the wood and the mild winter that followed.
