    I would have said Callistemon...

    Callistemon  probably citrinus which is fairly hardy here. also known as the bottle brush plant for obvious reasons.

    It comes from Australia, Hebes come from New Zealand.

  • Dear Victoria,

    Thank you so much, looks like Callistemon citrinus Splendens, it was in my friends garden and I couldn't name it! 

    Much appreciated.

    All the best.


  • Thanks fidgetbones!
