Some herbaries, from all countries, still uses the name of Callistemon Citrinus4. Or Callistemon Lanceolatus which is an older name5. It is a resistant and adaptable species, common in its natural habitat. It is widely cultivated, not only in Australia, where it is often known as the Callistemon Citrinus. It was one of the first Australian plants cultivated outside the country, having been brought to England in 1770 by Joseph Banks. Its peaks showing red flowers, present most of the year in an ideal situation, explain its popularity.
