Better-known by the name Bottlebrush, Callistemon is generally found in Australia and New Caledonia.
It grows in temperate climes and flowers mainly from March to July, and periodically throughout the year.
You will have the pleasure of seeing it in bloom if you are holidaying at our four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette® in off-season periods, in Spring (the ideal time of year – not too hot and far less people!), or right at the start of summer.
Where to find it at the campsite
Bottlebrush is used to separate certain pitches, but you will find it mainly at “Place de la Pascalinette” (nr. 1 on the botanical footpath plan).
