The Q&A Archives: Bottlebrush

Question: Can a Dwarf bottlebrush (Little John) be planted now? Can it have partial shade?

Answer: Callistemon (bottlebrush) can be planted anytime during the cool spring weather. Plants perform best in full sunshine. If the partial shade you mention is only morning shade, your bottlebrush should adjust and be happy. But, for best flower display, provide all day sunshine.
