When I planted Callistemon "Sieberi' twelve inchs away from Juniperus 'daubs frosted' (which can speed out to six feet) I knew that it was stupid and I've never even liked the two textures together. So after far too many years , I dug Sieberi up and she's now residing at the front of the house , which is south/east facing, still warm , but a little more protected. She's looking a little winter tattered.
The Daubs' can stretch out more comfortably now ; and I will look out for a new companion.
Sieberi in her new home, which badly needed more occupants .
