Found in the town of Waroona south of Perth in Western Australia
Bottlebrushes (Callistemon spp.) are among the hardiest of Australian native plants. They are long lived, require minimal maintenance and are almost impossible to kill. The flowers attract native birds, especially honey eaters, and reward the gardener with extraordinary amounts of colour. The original bottlebrushes available to gardeners were all bold red but flower colours now range from red to pink, mauve, cream and green. (http://www.burkesbackyard.com.au)

I live in beautiful Western Australia, where we are lucky to a wonderful diversity of wildflowers, many of which appear in my portfolio.

    Great shot ! I haven’t seen this colour, but some of our fellow travelers found one if I remember correctly at Bluff Knoll.

  • I wish now I had taken more shots of it as I have not seen another
