Botanical Name: Callistemon viminalis ‘Hannah Ray’
Common Name: ‘Hannah Ray’ Weeping Bottlebrush Tree
Description: Considered by many to be one of the best Bottlebrush cultivars, ‘Hannah Ray’ is a fast growing tree or shrub whose large red flowers hang from weeping stems. The new growth is bronze pink and develops into a soft blue green. ‘Hannah Ray’ is drought resistant once established, and the nectar and pollen laden flowers always have hummingbirds, butterflies, bees, and other pollinators on them. Likes a sun to part sun area. Grows 15′ tall x 10′ wide. She will bloom her little heart out from spring till fall. Deer resistant. Evergreen.
I love this tree. I say “tree,” but you can grow it either limbed up as a tree or let it limb up from the ground for a more shrubby look. Either way is beautiful. It does have a very informal look with its weepiness. Please do not shear or cut back the branches because you’ll ruin its natural weeping shape and you’ll cut off all the flowers/flower buds.
This plant in the 3-gallon containers is 3-4′ tall x 2-3′ wide.
