This amazing spring-flowering bottlebrush is bright pink, with edges of yellow pollen-filled anthers.
I believe that it is Callistemon salignus (Willow Bottlebrush), an endemic Australian shrub or tree in the family Myrtaceae family.
The flowers of this species are normally white or green – the pink coloured variety is rare.
This plant grows in New South Wales, Australia.
