Callistemon ‘Mauve Mist’ is an evergreen shrub producing mauve-pink flowers in a ‘bottlebrush’ form in summer. Suited to a very sheltered (base of sunny wall), warm site in a mixed or shrub border or can be grown in a cool greenhouse/conservatory. Generally hardy – shelter from cold blasting winds.
If grown outside plant in well-drained, but moist neutral to acid soil in full sun. If grown inside – pot in a loam-based compost (JI No.2) in full light and good ventilation.
The picture is of ‘Pym’ which is similar, but the flowers of Mauve Mist are longer.
