Bottle Brush Tree



On this exact day one year ago, I posted some photos of the blooms on a bottle brush tree that I found by accident.  Many of you wanted to see the whole tree but, when I went back to photograph it, the blooms were all gone.  So, I waited until this spring and made several trips past waiting for it come into full bloom.

Here you are, the whole tree full of those wonderful, red, brush-like blooms.

I see these as small bushes quite often but last year was the first time I'd seen one in full tree size.












It really makes for a dramatic sight!

What a great tree -- and some serious planning on your part! I'm sure I've mentioned before that my neighbor across the street when I was a kid had a huge bottlebrush tree, so every time I see them now, I think of that one!

I don't think I've ever seen one that big! So pretty!

We have a bottle brush tree in our front yard that's blooming right now. Doesn't look nearly as nice as this one, however!!

They are truly beautiful but one of the messiest trees in existence.
