Is IT A Bottlebrush?

As you know, this is a kitchen tool. Glad you have :D I dont have :-)


I saw this uniquely plant yesterday at neighbors garden. It is rarely here.
Bottlebrush (Callistemon) is a genus of 34 species of shrubs in the family Myrtaceae. The majority of Callistemon species are endemic to Australia; four species are also found in New Caledonia. They are commonly referred to as bottlebrushes because of their cylindrical, brush like flowers resembling a traditional bottle brush. They are found in the more temperate regions of Australia, mostly along the east coast and south-west, and typically favour moist conditions so when planted in gardens thrive on regular watering. However, at least some of the species are drought-resistant.

Did you  finish to wash glasses as well?


Have a nice weekend!!

Lovely picture. We have lots of bottlebrush trees - native here in Australia. They attract the birds too - so lovely :-) Have a great weekend!

That's a beautiful plant, even if the blooms do look a lot they're ideal for cleaning bottles!

Yes mami! The flowers looks like a bottle brush!! We have flowers which is similar to that here but it's round!

I don't think they're that common here but I have seen some, the flowers are certainly striking. I'm not sure they'll be very effective on bottles though!!!!
