Red Callistemon: Red Bottle Brush Flower

Red Callistemon: Red bottle brush flowers
Callistemon (pron.: /ˌkælɨˈstiːmən/)[2] is a genus of 34 species of shrubs in the family Myrtaceae, all of which are endemic to Australia. Callistemon species 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.
