Callistemon Better John™

Callistemon viminalis ‘LJ1’ Better John™ PP27,331

Better John is a seedling selection of the dwarf bottlebrush C. ‘Little John’ and was selected for improved plant vigor, its “blue” foliage color, and because it exhibited a more dense foliage canopy.  Easy to grow, quick to establish and long lived in the landscape.  Simply put: Better John is very similar to ‘Little John’… only better!  Better John™ flowers from mid to late spring. Its mature foliage is blue-grey, but its new growth will have a silver tone due to the soft hairy texture.  Breeder: Todd Layt, Ozbreed Pty. Ltd.  Part of our Tuffy Plant Collection™.

  • Dwarf size but a vigorous grower
  • Great for mass plantings, hedges and foundation plantings
