Callistemon x 'Little John'-Bush Red Bottlebrush

This cultivar originated in the state of New South Wales in Australia in the late 1970's and is of unknown parentage.  It is a compact growing evergreen shrub to 3' tall and wide producing blood red brushes in spring on gray green foliage.  A very regular, almost symmetrical spiral pattern of dense, oval, blue green leaves is shown along the stems.
