What a great photo, I have never seen those, of course it could be because I have not spent much time in California for a very long time. It really does look like a bottle brush, doesn't it. Hugs, Cindy S.

They do have amazing red flowers. We have a bottle brush in our yard and when people walk by they always look at the blooms.

It amazes me each time I see one of these how much it does look like the old bottle brushes we used to clean baby bottles.
Great DOF!
