Callistemon 'Little John' is an attractive dwarf bottlebrush shrub with blue-green leaves that contrast nicely with the deep, blood red bristled flowers that appear in summer but may bloom throughout the year. The densely branched compact evergreen attracts hummingbirds and bees and is the perfect fit in most gardens. Tolerates seaside conditions but is ideal in an inland garden. Drought tolerant once fully established but performs best with some irrigation. Use in containers, an accent plant, a low-medium height formal hedge, or informal border.
