Hi Jay, I'm still curious about the Clemson Red Cluster bottlebrush. The cultivar originated from a bottlebrush tree/shrub that survived and stayed green somewhere on the Clemson campus. I'd really appreciate any info you can find out about this plant. Wish I could attend the show up there, but the drive from Sumter is too far. Hope you find lots of cool 'stuff'.

Lucinda,
All I know about this plant is that I think it's used in the landscaping at the botanical garden. Check the SCBG's Website for a telephone number. They should be able to tell you about the plant's availability. Have you looked at the Woodlanders Website? They may have it, or possibly Nurseries Caroliniana in North Augusta. With _Making It Grow_ being produced there in Sumter, it may be worthwhile to ask Amanda McNulty and Rowland Alston about the _Callistemon sp._ 'Clemson Hardy.' I did stop by the Clemson Lowe's Garden Center to find out whether they had this plant. Of course, they had never heard of it.

Thanks for your advice, Jay. I need to contact Clemson University for a plant ID and recommendations. I've found that most BB's marketed here are only root hardy in zone 8a. Woodlander's Red Callistemon is fully cold hardy here, but it's leaves and flowers aren't very showy. Thanks again!
