Callistemon polandii F.M.Bailey , Queensl. Fl. 2003 1902. (Syn: Melaleuca polandii (F.M.Bailey) Craven);
 
As per efi thread: Shrub or small tree with ovate-lanceolate leaves, mostly broader than 1 cm, hairy; heads very dense, more than 5 cm broad; stamens crimson with yellow anthers; Seems to be differing from C. speciosus, both having yellow anthers in shorter and much broader leaves, much more hairy when young, and broader, denser spikes.

 

Callistemon polandii: From Kolkata botanical garden. Gold tipped bottle brush. Native of Australia.
Callistemon polandii: is a member of the Myrtaceae family and is commonly known as the Gold-tipped Bottlebrush.  

Callistemon polandii is a shrub that varies in height. Forms, of this species, range in size from compact shrubs to plants that will reach a height of four metres.  
The leaves are ovate to lanceolate in shape and bear numerous oil dots. The brushes are from six to ten centimetres long and bright red with yellow anthers (hence the common name). Flowering is said to extend from late winter to early summer. This may be the case in warm climates. Callistemon polandii is a “double-barrelled” plant. Not only are the flowers extremely colourful but the new growth is bright red. Both young foliage and flowers are attractive features.  
Callistemon polandii is a native of Queensland.  
The species name does not refer to the country of origin but is named after the Rev. W. Poland. http://www.yallaroo.com.au/Callistemon_polandii.htm
