  1. Gosh, I had assumed these bright pink bottlebrushes were all cultivars, something you'd not see in the wild! Well, isn't that wonderful you have seen them and have shared to this site. The critically endangered listing is of course a much sadder note. Imagine these all those years ago sprinkled throughout our countryside, unbelievably spectacular. Posted 8 days ago
