Flower Photo: Bottlebrush Tree (Callistemon citrinus)

Native of Australia Found in Okinawa


Flowers, Bottlebrush,tree


This one was found just down the street and around the corner from my office.

My friend over at Eat The Weeds says you can make tea from this plant.

Over in California, they have an Urban Forest Ecosystems Institute.

Lots of information, over there but, they didn't mention tea.

So, I'm thinking of contacting a friend in the Land Down Under.

Just to find out what Australians do with these trees.


 It may take a while for an answer.

Meanwhile, check out Eat The Weeds website.

He's got stuff like, Can We Eat Grass ? over there.

He doesn't sound like some urban forest, city boy scientist.

Sounds as if he's some kind of survivalist dude, to me.
