Callistemon Hannah Ray is a large shrub to small tree. It bears large red flowers, and it has an attractive weeping habit. Profuse flowering in spring with a follow up in autumn make this a great screening plant for a variety of climates. It can be pruned to size if desired, and removing the old flowers will encourage new growth and increased flowering. Does well in sun or part shade, and on most soil types.
