Callistemon citrinus - Bottle Brush

Callistemon citrinus - Bottle Brush (Callistemon citrinus - Bottle Brush)

This tree I wish I could cut down. It's my neighbor's tree which is mostly on my side. It's such a messy tree. Photo taken April 21, 2014.

It much too large and tall, though.

I like C. viminalis (weeping bottebrush) better...even though, it easily grows to 60' (20m) or taller here. It has willowy branches.

It's funny because Wikipedia says C. viminalis only grows to 8m (26ft). The smaller C. citrinus grows to 30' (10m) tall here. This one is about around 30' (10m).
