Moving to Florida from the Midwest 10 years ago, I found so many new plants and trees that were unfamiliar to me. One tree that I always found very beautiful is the Callistemon rigidus or the Bottle Brush Tree.
When all the soft, bristle-like needles fall off the tree, the ground turns red. The problem arises when there is a car parked underneath the tree. They get everywhere and make a mess.
