@jamesshobbs Can this be grown in the UK? Specifically the Midlands? As it looks tropical!

Josie, they aren't tropical and some Callistemon are quite frost hardy. I don't know how cold it gets in the Midlands but they grow in Australia in places where they get frosts. Here's a nice small one that would be easier to keep warm during your long, cold winters: http://paddockplants.co.uk/en/shrubs/226-callistemon-little-john.html @IlsonRootsProject
