My partner found this beautiful flowering plant while walking around a nearby neighbourhood (East coast of Australia, South of Sydney):
She said it had long thin branches, and was less than a metre off the ground, but believed it to be quite young/new.
I originally thought it might be a species of Banksia or Bottlebrush, but the leaves are unlike any I've seen for those species.
What sort of plant is this? Is it a bush or tree? Is it an Australian native?
