Callistemon ‘Anzac’ is a form of Callistemon citrinus collected from a wild population on Anzac Cove, southern Sydney NSW. The cultivar was registered in 1986.
Callistemon ‘Anzac’ is a sprawling shrub growing to a height of one metre with a maximum spread of three metres. In our cold climate garden plants seldom exceed one metre across.
The lanceolate leaves are about 6 cm long by 1 cm wide. The flowers are white aging to creamy white, often with spikes in three clusters. Flower spikes are from 10 to 15 cm long by 6 cm in diameter. The flowering season is from November to January.
C. ‘Anzac’, because of its growth habit, would make and attractive, long flowering foreground specimen in garden beds.
