Weeping Bottle Brush tree

Callistemon viminilis

The flowers of the bottle brush tree make you think that it would be neat to have this tree growing outside your kitchen window. How handy to just reach out to get one of these whenever you need to wash some bottles. There are many species of this tree with flowers of varying colours. So far I have only seen trees that have white or crimson flowers. I think this picture shows a Weeping Bottlebrush because of the drooping leaves but can't really be sure. The bottlebrush tree is native to Australia.
