Callistemon 'Summer Days' is a small arching free flowering shrub with dense foliage and reddish new growth. The dark red brushes open in late spring and continue through summer, flowering much later than other small bottlebrushes. Use as low hedging or specimen planting mixed with other shrubs or beneath taller screening plants. An adaptable plant for wet areas to dry soils, and also coastal gardens. Likes a sunny spot, and tolerates frost. Grows to around a metre tall and wide, and pruning after flowering will encourage more, and will help to increase the plant density.
