Small nursery specimen, just planted

Common name dwarf bottlebrush
Family myrtaceae
Life cycle shrub (Z8-11)
Flowers red
Size 3-4'
Light sun
Cultural notes drought-tolerant

Fast-growing shrub that stays about three feet tall, growing to a width of up to five feet, with smaller leaves than the species. Bottlebrush flowers. I've purchased this on two occasions – the first time, it was tagged as a cultivar of C. viminalis, the second time as C. citrinus. Both occur in Google searches, so it's hard to say which is accurate.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: houston front yard
