Features evergreen willow-like leaves, papery bark, and bottle brush flowers in late spring. Native to Australia, it should do well in our Houston garden. We bought one by mail order as a small sapling, so it will be a while before we get to see its true habit. Flower color on this species can reportedly vary from off-white to yellow to red, but the tag says yellow so I figure that's what we're getting.

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