    Callistemon rigidus is an erect, evergreen shrub that can attain heights to 15 feet and can be trained as a standard or used as a hedge. Callistemon ridigus prefers a full sun location but will do well in partial shade. The beautiful red bottle-brush shaped blooms appear in the spring and summer months and attract butterflies and hummingbirds.
