That would make an interesting band name. Anyhow, despite more than one neighbor calling it a “California weed”, we love our Bottlebrush tree. The novelty may soon wear-off though, judging by the amount of ‘red stuff’ I swept up this morning.
It does attract masses of bees too, but they only seem interested in the tree. And, now in full bloom, it’s stunning to look at. Funny, we both dislike red mostly, but it’s somehow different in nature. We both agree, the Bottlebrush stays.
