Help with identification

outsideplaying_gw(7)July 11, 2005

I took these photos at the Eden Project in the UK (Cornwall)last week. They was no identification plate, and I haven't been able to identify them so far. There are 2 views of the bottlebrush-looking flower. Can anyone please help?

Thanks a bunch! By the way, I recommend this place if anyone is ever traveling in the SW of England. Lovely place, and so is the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

The last 2 look like Callistemon, perhaps 'Perth Pink'.

That 1st one is quite unusual...looks like a peeling corn cob of sorts. Might help to be able to see some foliage of the plant.


Here is a link that might be useful: Callistemon

Looks like you nailed it on the 'Perth Pink' Callistemon. Sorry I didn't get another photo of the other one with more foliage. It did look like a peeling corn cob, but smaller. Thanks for your help.
