Here is the profusely flowering bottlebrush in my front yard. When I arrived at this house nearly three years ago someone had cut it off right down to the stump. Why? I don't know. There was another one right next to it but it failed to revive. Since then though this one has defied the odds to grow six foot tall and this year is the best display yet.
What's really amazing is that only half the flowers are out so far. The birds love it. As do the bees. So they'll be feasting for some weeks to come!

with so many beautiful flowers you should think about making your own Christmas cards and put your flowering shrubs as part of the card-- great colours.
