Flora Burst™ Callistemon is a self-cleaning Callistemon with masses of flowers upon flowers
    It produces masses of red bottle brush flowers in spring where just about the entire plant is covered in flowers, with more flower buds ready to open.

    The flowering nature of Flora Burst™ Callistemon is a real feature and flowers will often appear in autumn as it repeat flowers in certain regions of Australia.

    Unlike many prolific flowering Callistemons, the Flora Burst™ plant is relatively self cleaning, leaving far less seed pods on the plant after flowering. Flora Burst™ Callistemon has beautiful rustic red new growth in spring and autumn.
