Scarlet Honey Myrtle
Melaleuca fulgens Red
A beautiful plant that produces narrow foliage and masses of red bottlebrush flowers from spring to summer. It is an excellent screening plant, water wise and attracts birds to the garden. Plant in a full sun or partly shady position in well-drained soil. Lightly prune after flowering, heavy pruning can remove next year’s flower buds. Tolerates drought conditions and frost once established. Available in apricot orange, red, and purple flowering forms.
