Working out which plants are going to grow well in your garden can be overwhelming if you don't know alot about plants. There a some plants of which I call the "super plants" that grow well in most locations.
One these is the "Kings Park's Special" Callistemon. It was originally a seedling raised in Kings Park, Perth and registered in 1980 as a cultivar famous for its graceful pendulous form and prolific rich red flowering bottlebrushes.
It is one of those outstanding plants that touches the heart when in flower.
While the photos in this link don't show its true colour. it sums up
its attributes well. www.gardeningwithangus.com.au/callistemon-kings-park-special-bottlebrush/
I once walked down an avenue of these which was breathtaking.
We have these available at the nursery this season.

Nursery open 10.00 - 5.00 Sat and Sun.
