Callistemon 'Great Balls of Fire' is a hardy evergreen shrub that is a striking foliage plant. This cultivar rarely flowers but should be grown for its wonderful, bright red new growth which is borne on a very compact, bun-shaped shrub. It grows well in a wide range of climatic conditions, from humid tropical areas to cool temperate climates. Once established it is dry tolerant, but it will appreciate deep watering in dry periods. A light trim and an application of a good general purpose fertiliser in spring will ensure a good flush of new growth. This is an easy care plant for the garden, also for container growing.
