New bottlebrushe plant

This new plant is so funky. Callistemon species are commonly referred to as bottlebrushes because of their cylindrical, brush like flowers which resemble a traditional bottle brush. Flowering is normally in spring and early summer (October–December), but conditions may cause flowering at other times of the year. We put it in the front garden in a sheltered position and it looks great (we think anyway).
