Bulletproof landscape plants. Not all plants are equal. Many require the soil and climate (amongst other things) to be 'just right'. The plants described in this article are the ones that deserve the title of 'bulletproof' and are a good starting point for an easy-care garden.
Callistemon 'Pink Champagne' has large soft pink flowerheads borne on an upright, large-leafed medium sized shrub. It flowers in spring and autumn, and is very adaptable with regard to soil type and climatic conditions. Grows to 3 metres high and 2 metres wide, making it a good choice for screening and hedging, and it responds well to pruning to keep it to size. Best in full sun and a moist soil. Fertilise in spring. Frost tolerant.
