Callistemon - bush with bright red bottlebrushes!

Read in Swedish: Lampborste - buske med röda flaskborstar!

Pretty fun bush with those bright red flowers looking like bottlebrushes! Crimson Bottlebrush  is probably the English name...Many are red and they look the same to me at the small pictures I find! The only thing I'm sure about is that it's a Bottlebrush of the genus Callistemon in the family Myrtaceae. I don't know the Greek name...anyone?

This bush or small tree blooming now is quite common in the Greek gardens.

Have a nice evening!
