Callistemon citrinus is the most widely cultivated Callistemon and has been responsible for many of the cultivars that are seen in gardens, sometimes as hybrids with other Callistemon species.  It is a medium shrub reaching about 2m tall and 2m wide and is a hardy plant under a wide range of conditions.
Like most Callistemons, it is are adaptable to a wide range of soils and climate and may be pruned severely if required or desired.  Many Callistemons can tolerate less than perfect drainage but usually perform best in gardens with reasonable drainage and regular availability of water and responds to well to annual fertilising after flowering and are not as sensitive as some other Australian plants to phosphorus.


Propagation is very easy from seed.
