What's this please ?
hi everyone, I have this plant in my garden and it was thriving in early spring now it like this I was going to remove it but then noticed all the new growth pleaae can you tell me what it is and how too look after it o love the shape etc, it was given to me by an elderly relative who passed away now I don't want to lose it if I can help it
So so long as it’s grown in a very sunny site on free draining soil, it should be fine. You can prune out any branches that are tired or dead. It is on the tender side when young so fleece it over if there’s frost forecast overnight.
Does it have some little rows of round brown seed capsules with holes in the tops along old branches?
And do you know if it had flowers like bottle brushes?
Try looking up Callistemon rigidus.
There are other types of Callistemon, which have slightly wider and softer leaves, they seem more commonly stocked, though I don't know why that might be.
