White Bottlebrush Tree

Callistemon salignus( White Bottlebrush )


This flower comes from the callistemon salignus or white bottlebrush tree. Sometimes called the Willow Bottlebrush, this tree can grow up to 50 feet tall. This picture is taken from Titiwangsa Lake Gardens, Kuala Lumpur. There are a few of these matured trees there.

Do you think that these flowers looks like a baby's bottle brush?
Have you seen this tree before?

  5. I think there are red ones across the road in an industrial planting around a shed.

    Sometimes here the red ones come out before Christmas and it makes it special to me.

    Thanks for sharing about it, I wonder if my daughter would notice the Aussie flower in KL?
