Weeping Bottlebrush (Melaleuca viminalis) are in full bloom right now. Originally from Australia, these trees have been planted widely in Florida since they are low-maintenance, drought-tolerant, and showy. Another bonus? The eye-popping flowers are also good providers for nectivores (note the bee butt in the lower third of the red florescence).
