love.newzealand Merry Christmas in advance! While it's not exactly pohutukawa, this plant is still prevalent around NZ and it's the humble #bottlebrush, genus #Callistemon and belonging to the #Myrtaceae family!

This showy #shrub is an #Australian neighbour that has immigrated to #NewZealand and likes it here very well!

Strictly speaking the bottlebrush is a shrub, but one which can grow from half a metre to a tree-like four metres. It is admired for its abundant spring/summer (even autumn) flowers which, as the name suggests, resemble old-fashioned bottle brushes.

The botanical name (Callistemon) comes from the Greek word #Kallos meaning beauty and #Stemon meaning #stamen – each #feathery #flower being made up of hundreds of #stamens (#anthers and #filaments). There are many lovely varieties, about 40 Callistemon, with flowers ranging in colour from varying shades of flashy red to pinks, mauve, lemon and yes, creamy/white ‘blondes’. The new leaves, which are often coloured, can be rather ornamental too.

Of course, those glam redheads are perhaps the most common. In fact, it was the crimson bottlebrush (Callistemon citrinus), introduced to Britain in 1789 by Joseph Banks, that created a stir and raised the profile of this plant.
