I am trying to clear and organise my late mums garden and I am wondering what this is.

Download PlantParent or PictureThis apps onto your phone- you can identify most things on both of them and there are other apps too.

I'll try taking a photo of these but they might not be clear enough - OK, both are saying this is a Crimson Bottlebrush, which is what I thought it might be AKA Calistemon
It is restricted in a pot.  Will grow to about  2 to 4 metres wide and 4 to 6 metres tall in the ground over 10 plus years

It's beautiful if looked after

Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

Cut back a "bottle-brush" shortly after 1st annual flowers die-off and it will produce a 2nd flush of flowers.
