African Bottle Brush Tree Flowers
Submitted: Jul 25, '09
Great Travel Moment
The blossoms pictured are from a huge tree about 30 feet tall. The name is a bottle brush tree. When you look at the flowers you can see the resemblance to a bottle brush. The more red flowers that grow on the stem the more like a brush they appear. This tree was growing on the grounds of Brackenhurst. Brackenhurst is a tea plantation and conference center owned by the International Baptist Association. Our medical mission to this area was based at this beautiful place.
