Bottle Brushes

Now it's the turn of the bottle brushes to be flowering at our place. They are growing up around the house and in random areas of the bush on our land as well.

The majority of Callistemon species are endemic to Australia. They are commonly referred to as bottlebrushes because of their cylindrical, brush like flowers resembling a traditional bottle brush.

They are found mostly along the east coast and south-west, and typically like moist conditions so when planted in gardens thrive on regular watering. These bushes haven't recieved any water except that which fell from the heavens but seem to be doing OK.
