One of the most prolific bushes in our Arizona yard is the Bottlebrush.
Behind the bottlebrush is our Oleander hedge, also a prolific flower producer this time of year!
Each bottlebrush bush produces an abundance of bright red blooms made up of masses of stamens with the pollen at the tip of each filament.
