A shop favorite, the Callistemon sieberi 'sugar candy' is a durable evergreen shrub that is a superbly low maintenance choice for the home gardener. It will reward your landscape with beautiful magenta blossoms up to 6" long in spring, and sometimes fall. Loves full sun, can tolerate light shade, and will grow in well, moderate, and poorly draining soils. A true champion of numerous harsh conditions, plant Callistemon in a challenging area of your yard where other specimens may not fair quite as well. Responds well to moderate pruning, tolerates a light frost, and will attract pollinators to your garden. Plant as a hedge or part of a hedge row for privacy, in a container, as a windbreak, or anywhere you like to appreciate the foliage and that habitat this shrub provides.
