Glorious Bottlebrush!

Margaret's Classic Posts

What unusual and  delightful flowers are these! And don’t the birds love them…

Bottlebrushes are a popular tree where I live, and many have been planted on the streets nearby. The parrots seem to be especially attracted to them, often leaving a carpet of flowers under the branches. In our local bush-land park, I often see Rainbow Lorikeets perched near their flowers. What a dazzling display of colours…

    Gorgeous! I’ve only seen red bottle brush here in the States (the one you photographed looks hot pink). I have one, Little John, in my back yard, but my childhood home had an enormous shrub.

      They’re lovely, Victoria! We have a few small ones in our backyard, but there are lots around, and they come in various shades. 🙂
