Beautiful Bottlebrush!

17 Feb

For years I tried and failed to grow a Bottlebrush. For whatever reason–poor choice of location, wrong time of planting, adverse weather or unwise  depth of planting to name but a few — all my efforts met with failure.

At last, Lady Luck smiled upon me and I have successfully grown four lovely specimens in our backyard. Some flower several times a year and attract our wonderful native birds.

Living in suburban Sydney certainly has its upside!
