Callistemon (white bottlebrush) Transplant Not Happy
A couple months ago, we transplanted a beautiful Callistemon (white bottlebrush) "Canes Variety" (aka "Pink Stiletto" or "Pink Ice") from a 25g pot that it had burst through on our deck. Unfortunately the tree slowly turned brown and didn't look like it was going to make it despite the trees reputation for loving clay moist soil where we put it.
The tree then had some soft silvery growth at it tips so we garnered some hope, but now that has dried up and has fallen off.
To prevent us from giving completely up on it, the tree seems to have a few greenish spots that weren't on there before (?) despite mostly looking brown.
Is there any hope for this poor tree? Will it have a miraculous recovery next spring?
It was one of the prettiest trees we had. Now the neighbors wonder why we are keeping a dead tree planted in our front yard! :-(
Thanks for your thoughts!
