Plant Description: Red Alert is a compact Callistemon with vibrant, deep red new growth. It is a great low maintenance and more drought tolerant native alternative to exotic Photinia. Red Alert needs less pruning to establish a hedge. It has longer periods of red new growth than Photinia - vivid red foliage for 2 months in autumn and 2 months in spring, and lighter new growth foliage in other months. Red Alert is a seedling selection of Kings Park Special, research has shown that is unclear whether this viminalis species has been crossed with C. citrinus. Therefore Red Alert is possibly a viminalis x citrinus. Information and images supplied by Ozbreed.

Flower Description: Very rarely flowers.

Best Uses: Can be used as a hedge.
