Callistemon Citrinus - Crimson Bottlebrush
Photograph - Photography - Fine Art
Callistemon citrinus, also known as Crimson Bottlebrush is a shrub in the family Myrtaceae. This beautiful tree is in my garden . .
See the beautiful bee . . he is so sweet . . he continuously landed lightly on my right arm near my shoulder
as I was composing macros at eye level returning to the flower again and again burrowing deep content to share the space with me . .
The seed capsules are woody, cup-shaped and about 7mm wide and appear in clusters along the stems
The stamens are red, purplish-red or lilac with dark-coloured anthers.
Birds have been observed using the species as a source of food.
Bees and Butterflies love them . .
