The Q&A Archives: Size of Bottlebrush (Callistemon)

Question: I'm planting Bottlebrush plants from Home Depot to form a hedge between me and my neighbor. How close together (on a line) should I plant these to ultimately have a solid wall? Thanks!

Answer: Bottlebrush can grow anywhere between 6 and 15 feet tall and about 6 feet wide. If you plant on 4 foot centers, your shrubs will grow into a thick hedge in a few short years.
