Better John is a seedling selection of the dwarf bottle-brush C. ‘Little John’ and was selected for improved plant vigour, its “blue” foliage colour, and because it exhibited a more dense foliage canopy.

Easy to grow, quick to establish and long lived in the landscape.

Simply put: Better John is very similar to ‘Little John’… only better! 

Better John™ flowers from mid to late spring.

Its mature foliage is blue-grey, but its new growth will have a silver tone due to the soft hairy texture.
