Looks a lot like a variety of Bottle Brush. No idea what cultivar. http://garden.org/plants/browse/plants/genus/Callistemon/

That's what I was thinking. Maybe like Dwarf Bottlebrush (Callistemon citrinus 'Little John')

Thanks, Cheryl and Jay.

It looked familiar - my mom has the bottlebrush tree in her backyard and it was loaded with 'blooms'.
