 Wikipedia states:
Melaleuca paludicola, commonly known as river bottlebrush, is a plant in the myrtle family, Myrtaceae and is endemic to eastern Australia. (Some Australian state herbaria continue to use the names Callistemon sieberi or Callistemon paludosus.)[2] It is a shrub or small tree with flexible, often drooping branches, pinkish new growth and spikes of cream, pale yellow, or sometimes pink flowers in summer.
 
This is the crimson form of this variety. 
We often have the yellow form of River Bottle brush as well.
 
Very popular due to its dense growing habit and profuse  flowers.
 
Hardy and quite fast growing native shrubs, that will give an abundace of vivid red bottlebrush flowers in summer.
 
Drought-tolerant once established (xeriscape plants).
 
Great also for containers, edging, rockeries, hedges, borders, screens etc 
 
Can be pruned quite hard.
 
This variety will grow to a height of approximately 2-4 metre tall and wide. 

They attract birds to your garden.

We also have quite a few other BottleBrushes available.
 
They can also be grown in frost prone and coastal areas.
 
Once established this variety will handle long periods without rain but it will also grow well in quite wet conditions.
 
They pretty much look after themselves once established.
 
Able to withstand full sun to semi shade.
 
 They will grow in most soil types.
