Bottle brush plants grow typically red flowers that look like bottle brushes, hence the name. The flowers' beautiful bright colors make them very attractive to nectar-feeding birds, bees and wasps. The plant is native to Australia, but is cultivated worldwide. Here are some photos of this beautiful plant taken in China's Sichuan Province.
