This callistemon is a very valuable tree for landscaping, as a screen plant, in erosion control or as a specimen or street tree. Bright scarlet red flowers appear in late spring and autumn and smaller numbers of flowers all year.
This is the tallest of the native pines and it is quite capable of reaching heights of more than 40 metres making it an impressive addition to my garden. It is a wonderful bird-attracting tree, as they love to nest in its protective prickly foliage and is an excellent host for lots of native orchid species.
