I was shooting birds (camera; not gun) when I noticed this unusual flower...hence the 500mm focal length. Looks like some sort of insect trapper. It was growing wild in the Sedona Wetlands Preserve and I only saw one of them in the entire area.

No, not here, but with any luck it will become one in Britain. To make up for all the thistles, gorse etc. that came the other way.:-P

Ray, these as you probably know are very pretty and here attract the native birds.
But some can grow very straggly.
Pruning is okay and some can take severe pruning.
If it's an issue, Google pruning native Australian plants, or more specific pruning callistemons.

Enjoy them. They don't prickle or fluff seeds everywhere etc. They're kindly plants  :p

Thanks for your comment Richard. I am growing it as a novelty really to invite comments :-)
I think I will have to shelter it better this winter and give it a bigger pot to get it to take off.
It seems it likes peaty soil - so they say.
