Captain Rick: Callistemon species are commonly referred to as bottlebrushes because of their cylindrical, brush like flowers resembling a traditional bottle brush. They are evergreen desert shrubs that flower in the spring and summer. Bottlebrush bushes take full sun and are somewhat drought-tolerant. The blooms are brilliant red.

    Beautiful photo Captain Rick. Our Little John bushes have bloomed more this year than in the 8 years we have been here. Will send photos.

    I forgot to mention that the Callistemon is originally from Australia.
    I received these words via Flickr from my friend Claire in Australia:
    “Superb shot of this Ozzie native… Glad to see it is being acclimatized to Arizona…”
    Claire, I welcome you to comment any time on my blog…including now…if you would like to add your story of Callistemon as it relates to its native home of Australia.
