Bottle brush (callistemon) question
I was growing a lovely bottle brush outside my house, near the sidewalk. I wanted it to grow as a tree - the main branch/trunk had become about 4 feet tall so far and was growing well.
Then someone came along and snapped off the top.
My question is - will the main trunk continue to grow tall, or am I now going to be stuck with a short bush that will just produce a bunch of horizontal branches below the cut line? Any way to encourage it to grow tall again?
ps - I will also move the tree so this wont happen again.
