Callistemon Salignus, also known as White Bottle Bush, is an upright spreading, evergreen, large shrub or small tree with distinctive papery white bark. Narrow willow like leaves pink-red when young, maturing to dark green, lemon scented when crushed. From May right through to late Summer an abundance of bottlebrush-like white tinged yellow flower spikes are produced, quite a show stopper for any garden. This large shrub or small tree is ideal for growing at the back of the shrub border or against a sunny wall.
