Weeping/ Drooping Bottlebrush, Bottle brush • Hindi: Cheel चील • Manipuri: বরপ লৈ Barap lei;
 
As per efi thread :
The Weeping Bottlebrush tree [C.viminalis] is larger than the Red Bottlebrush tree [C.citrinus], but is mainly differentiated from the latter by having stamens that are united in a ring at the base [whereas in the latter the filaments are free].
 
C. viminalis: Tree with drooping slender branches; leaves linear-lanceolate, up to 10 cm long and 4-7 mm broad; flowers scarlet--red in up to 7 cm long dense spikes; filaments united at base; fruits not persisting on old wood. 
C. citrinus: Shrub or tree with short arching branches; leaves broadly lanceolate, rigid, up to 7 cm long, 6-12 mm broad; flowers scarlet red in up to 10 cm long spike; filaments free at base; fruits persisting on 2--3 year old branches. 
 

Callistemon viminalis
(formerly Melaleuca viminalis), also known as Weeping Bottlebrush, is a shrub or small tree in the family Myrtaceae.
It is native to the states of New South Wales and Queensland in Australia where it often occurs along watercourses.
Weeping Bottlebrush grows up to 8 metres in height and has pendent branches with leaves which are 3 to 7 cm long and 3 to 7 mm in width. The bright red flower spikes, which are 4 to 10 cm in length and about 3 to 6 cm in diameter occur between spring and summer.

a Calliandra this time : 6 posts by 5 authors. Attachments (1)
Sorry, the earlier photo of Powder puff was of Callistemon, this time I am sending a photograph of Calliandra (Bottle brush)
This one is Callistemon viminalis, Weeping Bottlebrush.
It is the photograph of Callistemon citrinus, and not that of Calliandra. Again you have got confused!
I generally get confused between C. citrinus & C. viminalis. How to differentiate them at first glance or in the field?

The attatched picture is Callistemon.....? Attachments (1)
RE: differences between C. citrinus and C. viminalis:
--C. viminalis has longer, more weeping branches. It is generally a tree of moister, wetter soils and climates. Bark is distinctly furrowed, with corky ridges. Inflorescences are longer, to approx. 15cm in length. Flower color is typically dull, light red, though pink and some darker red forms exist.
--C. citrinus is generally shrubby, though can reach small tree (to 8-9 m) status in favorable, dry sites. It does not thrive in moist, humid climates. Bark is tight, flaky, and can be peeled easily in long strips. Inflorescences may be erect to nodding, seldom completely pendant, to approx. 10-12 cm in length, 2/3 as wide. They are typically bright red, more densely packed on the stem than C. viminalis. Color forms in mauve to purple also exist.
Re:Difference between Calliandra viminalis and C. citrinus -identification ? :
Yes.  You are correct. Everybody gets confused. Even the photograph in question is a doubtful one as the specimen has not been observed for its characters by none of us.  We are just identifying on the basis of photographs. The photograph in question may be C.viminalis or C.citrinus. The C. viminalis is  medium sized tree with more drooping branches. C.citrinus is a smaller one and more of a bush type.  ... has cited the differences in their morphology, very nicely. Therefore, I donot like to repeat. Neverthless, the leaves of the C. citrinus, when crushed in your hands, smell like lemon (strongly lemon scented)!   Therefore, one has to check for the morphological features  and the smell of the leaves carefully to confirm the identification.

Requesting to please ID this Callistemon species captured in Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai in January 2014.
The tree may be Callistmon phoeniceus
Callistemon- species in India & eFI with details & some keys
I would like to know the KEY to 'bottlebrush' tree. A question remains unresolved! Inadequate info can be found at http://www.anbg.gov.au/callistemon/. Perhaps leaves of several species contain essential oil - http://www.researchgate.net/publication/261711543_Essential_oil_composition_from_leaves_of_Eucalyptus_camaldulensis_Dehnh._and_Callistemon_viminalis_originated_from_Malaysia.
Perhaps -
1. C. phoeniceus have erect spike.
2. The two most commonly cultivated species are (i) C. vimnalis with pendulous branches, leaves 6 inches & tend to grow at the ends of long hanging branches; each flower sessile in axil of deciduous floral leaf (ii) C. citrinus with 1-3 inches leaf and terminal spike.
I think it is C. vimnalis.
Thank you ... for the feedback, I hope someone nails the ID....
Uploading the pic of a fallen flower in Jijamata Udyan....
..., is this what you mean by "stamens that are united in a ring at the base"? If yes, is it C. viminalis?
I think yes, C. viminalis.
Callistemon viminalis or C. lanceolatus
Thank you ... for your feedback...
What is the key to distinguish between C. viminalis and C. lanceolatus?

Thanks for this very useful key. The site does not seem to be updated as C. lanceolatus which for many years had been treated as synonym of C. citrinus is now treated distinct in both GRIN and The Plant List. This website is silent about C. lanceolatus.
I can't understand where did you get stuck. Linear leaves and filaments connate into ring are easily visible in your last photograph, where stamens are detached from flower as single unit and not separate stamens.
Initially didn't understand what the KEY meant by "stamens fused into a ring at the base" ...... thought what was that "ring" they were telling..... thought would check on Monday by revisiting! Then saw your post and all became clear.
Yes, I did note your question in Dave's garden forum.... couldn't find any clue, except a plate and lit. informing Metrosideros citrina has very harsh leaf.
Older literature all thinks they are synonymous, as you have already pointed out..... I think the difference would be minute one.
(old lit.) -

greatly informative pictures. this goes to show how important is to take photos of all ALL salient points for proper id. Hope we learn from your technique and tenacity, ...
and thaks ... for the discussion
Thank you ... The thread, by ..., raised my curiosity!

Crassulaceae, Combretaceae and Myrtaceae Fortnight: Myrtaceae-Callistemon viminalis from Delhi-GSDEC54 : 1 post by 1 author. Attachments (3) 
Most of us know through Floras and common books Callistemon lanceolatus DC. as the commonest species of Callistemon cultivated in many parts of India. As it turned out for last 5 to six decades this was considered as synonym of C. citrinus (Curtis) Stapf. 
As has been clearly specified in Trees of Delhi (Pradip Krishen) none of the specimens grown in Delhi belong to C. citrinus. They actually belong to C. viminalis (Soland. ex Gaertn.) Cheel., the two similarly looking species are distinguished as under:
C. viminalis: Tree with drooping slender branches; leaves linear-lanceolate, up to 10 cm long and 4-7 mm broad; flowers scarlet--red in up to 7 cm long dense spikes; filaments united at base; fruits not persisting on old wood.
C. citrinus: Shrub or tree with short arching branches; leaves broadly lanceolate, rigid, up to 7 cm long, 6-12 mm broad; flowers scarlet red in up to 10 cm long spike; filaments free at base; fruits persisting on 2--3 year old branches.
C. viminalis is aptly represented in our website through uploads of Balkar ji Rathinasabapathy ji and several posts of Bimal ji  I am uploading mine from Delhi here.
Now there is a big catch. It has now been established (both on The Plant List and GRIN) that C. lanceolatus (Sm.) Sweet and C. citrinus (Curtis) skeels are two distinct species and not synonymous (although C. lanceolatus DC. a synonym of latter). It would as such be interesting to know the differences between the two to be able to place our specimens properly. Perhaps some member can help. 
I also have feeling that C. rigidus of Flowers of India and one uploaded by Aarti ji from Lalbagh may actually be one of these two species, as C. rigidus has much narrower almost linear lobes and capsules with almost close mouth where as in both above uploads leaves are broader almost broadly lanceolate with capsules with clearly open mouths.
Perhaps once differences between C. lanceolatus and C. citrinus as understood now, are know, we can place our specimens correctly.

nice
do you have a key for the classification of bottlebrushes... both red and white?

Not complete, just here and there. 
Beautiful upload. Callistemoon citrinus is very common in Cafornia and your upload resembles with the plants as the plant are shrubby and leaves are coarse subtends with the flowers

I think Callistemon viminalis
To me it appears like Callistemon viminalis (Sol. ex Gaertn.) G.Don ex Loudon only as per images herein. 
It is C. viminalis for sure.

Could be C. citrina, Have seen this sp last month in Jijamata Udyan near wooden bridge in big pond .
Thank you ... Hope to get it validated.

Callistemon for ID :: Hosur :: JUN2018 MK002 : 3 posts by 2 authors. Attachments (11)
Please help in identifying this Callistemon sp. Is this C.lanceolatus or C.citrinus?
The tree has been found growing up to a height of 10 metres and is 30 years old, grown as ornamental in a garden.
Altitude: 850 m asl
Date: 19 Jun 2018
Place: Hosur, Tamilnadu

I think a most common cultivated species of Callistemon viminalis (Sol. ex Gaertn.) G.Don ex Loudon as per comparative images at Callistemon
