Interesting colors. Is this how it looked to your eye in nature?

looks like the saturation was jacked up a bit... almost too green on the leaves...

yes, in the flowering season with the sun on it, it looks exactly like that.

Just nipped out and had a look -- no flowers and it's a darker green now (mid-summer, plus it's raining -- we've had over 130mm in the last 24 hours)

Plant's about 45 years old, BTW and perhaps 1.5 metres tall -- it's in my driveway.

'Callistemon viminalis' was the original, there have been many manipulated and varigated types since nurseries have been crossing the named tree/shrub. Obviously too many to mention.

There is a guy in Florida near the Everglades that makes play stands/trees for parrots. He uses Bottle Brush for the branches. He says it is a weed where he is at. I ordered a delux play tree for my African Grey Parrot. Gospel, the parrot, really likes it. BTW, that is him as my avitar. - Steven
