Callistemon, commonly known as bottlebrush, is another incredible Australian native shrub/small tree. There are several varieties with flowers in reds, yellows, pinks and greens.
We planted this particular bottlebrush as a small plant just over 12 months ago. The bush is now nearly as tall as me and its first flower is just opening. I have loved following its progress, let me share it with you.

Isn't it beautiful! I believe God is incredibly creative and the author of all beauty. I have so enjoyed closely watching the little buds open up to reveal their squiggly nests of stamens which then unwound into a starburst. When fully opened the complete flower appears as a bottlebrush in shape.

Spring has arrived in Qz, and the flora is growing from mere buds to beautiful flowers - hopefully the temperatures are rising as fast as the flowers are blooming...
This is an amazing flower, starting from a single bud into many leaves in a bold red 'brush'. It is amazing in its style, allowing God's idea of beauty for all to admire.
This is a lovely time-lapse view!
Cool series of photos! Thanks for sharing:)

these pics are absolutely amazing! and your reflection about God's creation is exactly what i was thinking about as i was looking at some seashells.
Although the bottle brush is common here, I've never really seen the progression from bud to bloom. It's fascinating and your photos are beautiful!!
It is fascinating to see the blooms open. I really like the progression of your shots.
