If I Could Have Only One Tree…Posted: April 8, 2013
It would be the Weeping Bottle Brush (Callistemon viminalis).
In the spring it is loaded with luscious red brush-like flowers.
It will lightly bloom again in the fall.
Bees love it.
It blooms just in time for the hummingbird migration. The tree buzzes with hummingbirds and even though there seems to be enough for all, the little birds spar with each providing exciting entertainment.
The Weeping Bottle Brush is evergreen and provides shelter year-round for birds.
