The bottlebrush is one of Australia's easily identifiable plants that can be seen growing as small shrubs to larger tree, depending on the species. With its bottle shaped flowers, there are some 40 species.

Following images is the Weeping Bottlebrush (Callistemon viminalis), seen flowering in spring or summer. One of the most widely cultivated of all bottlebrushes, this example is an established tree in the front garden of the Alice Springs Reptile Centre. Other examples can be seen throughout the town.

The two red bottlebrushes mentioned in the Alice Springs Town Council 'Recommended Plant Database' are the Callistemon "Dawson River Weeper" cultivar and the "Weeping Bottlebrush" (Callistemon viminalis). They also list the "White Bottlebrush" (Callistemon salignus) with creamy brush flowers and Callistemon "Reeves Pink" cultivar with masses of pink bottlebrush flowers.

The local indigenous plant is the Desert Bottlebrush (Melaleuca faucicola), found near waterholes in gorges within the MacDonnell, Petermann and Harts Ranges, although its conservation status is 'nationally rare'. This species has orange-red bottlebrush flowers in autumn.
