Bottle Brush Plant

Walking round some gardens recently we came across this Bottle Brush Plant. We have one of these in our garden at home but somehow it doesn't seem to be as green as this one. 

I gather there are quite a few species of this plant and that they originate from Australia and that part of the world.

Very colourful Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, we've got one of these in our front garden but it doesn't stay like this for very long unfortunately.
Very nice presentation of this plant Brian. I really like the colour tones!
Brian Walbey: They are a very nice colour Richard but the whole thing can be a bit straggly.
