Bottle Brush

This is a picture of the Australian Bottle Brush. As you can see from the flower, it does indeed look like a bottle brush.
Australian native birds love the honey or nectar of these flowers and we are growing some on our property to attract the birds.
Colours are quite varied, with Red being the more common colour. On the path we followed there are lots of these golden coloured bottle brush trees and a grove of big bad banksia men trees.
