I've never seen this tree before, Darla, but I absolutely love it! I'm assuming that we probably can't grow it here (a decidedly different climate!), but I'm going to research it just the same. I like your poem about Bella. Seems like finding her in your yard is a very good sign!
Bella is beautiful! I didn't know bottlebrush plants could grow to be that big. The red flowers look stunning against the blue sky.
Beth, the Bottlebrush is actually native to Australia; I've read that it can grow in Florida but that one has to be very careful of not over-watering.Diane, isn't she just?! She's the largest one in our neighborhood, and I feel so blessed that she is growing with vigor in our yard.
Thank you for stopping by. With open heart, I welcome your thoughts however you wish to share them, whether via personal email or as a comment here. ~ Bright Blessings ~
