|Greg's mystery garden
|bottlebrushes and the like
This is one of many pages describing plants and animal life
that we have in our garden. In many cases, we don't know what they are. Comments welcome.
By default the photos on this page are relatively small (“thumbnails“). Click
on them to get progressively larger photos.
I originally thought that all these plants were bottlebrushes
(Callistemon), but I'm no longer so
sure. I certainly don't know what kind they are.
This one is almost certainly a bottlebrush. It was completely overgrown when we moved in, and
shortly after this photo was taken, I pruned it radically:
The tree responded well to the pruning, despite the wrong time of year. Next to it is another
I suspect the tree below one is really
a melaleuca. The brushes grow on
established wood on the stem. I'll get more photos next time it blooms.
The following trees grown in a part of the garden that I haven't attended to at all yet.
