A very tough and unique bottlebrush from Tasmania, the Green Bottlebrush is among the most hardy of the genus and unlike any other plant in the garden. The foliage looks something like a mix between a conifer and an olive tree on grey-white stems and the flowers are an amazing lime green. Unique and very easy to grow in full sun with well-drained soils.
