Wow! How tall does it grow please, my daughter was looking for one of these will it survive in this country?

That is gorgeous! I've got two cuttings (out of 6) indoors in pots, they're about 3" high at the moment. I dunno really what you do with them, I thought they were tender and had to be indoors in the winter, then put outdoors after the frosts but you obviously don't take that one indoors!!!!

Thanks guys...

It is about 7feet at the moment. My bees looooove it.

I really don't know if it will live outdoors in the UK....

My neighbour has one that romped away for several years. Its in a sheltered position. It got hit hard this winter but it did survive.

I have planted a second one this spring. I'm going to keep this one low like a bush.

It's looking good!

My neighbor has one that's 25ft/7.7m tall. The red stamens drive me nuts!!! However, I'm glad my neighbor doesn't have Callistemon viminalis - Weeping bottlebrush because it grows to more than 60ft/20m tall here.

Oh boy, I really don't want it growing that big!!!

Callistemon citrinus - Bottlebrush (the one you have posted) will usually only grow to about 30ft/10m tall max.
