Callistemon Viminalis Rose Opal is a compact dwarf shrub with classic rosy red bottlebrush flowers and evergreen foliage.

It’s a hardy shrub that’s drought and frost tolerant once established. She also sucks up pollution and withstands harsh pruning. Yeah - bombproof. If you’re a self-confessed plant killer Rose Opal is for you.

One of the great reasons to buy this hardy shrub is because she spreads but doesn’t outgrow the welcome. Rose Opal stays nice and compact, adding year-round colour to smaller outdoor spaces.

If you’re a nature lover pop lots of these around your garden. Rose Opal attracts native insects, pollinators, and birds in their droves.

Bottlebrush will grow happily in the border or in a well-watered pot. Some folk love her so much they make nature-loving hedges and windbreaks – you know it makes sense!

Quick Facts:

  • What to use me for: Use me to add colour to a small garden either in pots or the border.  Birds and insects love my evergreen foliage and red flowers.
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 1.5-2m high and 1-1.5m wide.
  • Where to place me: Full sun to part shade is good with me.
  • How far to space me:  Give me 1.5 metres unless you want a tight-knit hedge in which case 1 metre is grand.
  • Soil Conditions: I’m happy anywhere once established, but not wet boggy ground that’ll rot my roots. Water me regularly until I’m established and putting on growth.
