Callistemon Citrinus

Callistemon citrinus: I have jokingly called these bottle cleaner plants ever since I arrived here in the US (there is one here at my apartment complex that I drive past every day), and indeed the common name for this Australian native is the crimson bottlebrush. This particular shot was taken at the Botanical Gardens in Golden Gate Park last weekend.
