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.
