A Sight for Sore Eyes: Beautiful Bottlebrush

Margaret's Classic Posts

The Bottlebrush ranks high among my most-loved natives. Their brilliant colours and stunning form make them one of my favourite flowers to photograph. How delightfully do they respond to the play of light!

I hope you will enjoy seeing this flower in full bloom. The photo was taken in our own backyard. 2015_0531imagefacebook0156

    My childhood home had a huge bottle brush (tree/bush) growing on the side of the house. It eventually dwarfed its trellis. I have two “Little Johns” (small versions of the plant) in my own backyard. Thanks for sharing. I love this unique plant.

      Thanks, Victoria! I have three young Bottlebrush growing in our yard, and there are quite a few planted in neighbouring streets and the local park. They are very beautiful!

    That looks a particularly colourful specimen Margaret. A lovely plant.
