Callistemon 'Endeavour' is one of the best red bottlebrushes on an erect but compact shrub. Very large flowerheads that birds and other nectar lovers adore, from spring, summer through to autumn. A very adaptable plant, great for screening and for hedging as well as general planting in the garden. Handles boggy soils well, and is frost and drought tolerant and can do well in coastal planting. A very versatile and useful shrub.
