Good evening everyone. I saw this in a parking lot not too far from me. I love the way it looks but I have no idea what it is. Can anyone help?

I don't think Pittosporum.. I'm thinking dwarf bottlebrush. Callistemon citrinus 'Little John'


or possibly a non- dwarf that's been sheared regularly.

I thought bottlebrush too. Flowers would be nice to see.

I agree with Henhouse and the rest who say Little John Callistemon.
If you enlarge the OP's picture you can barely see remnants of a red flower towards the bottom right of the photo...which look like Callistemon L.J.

When I took the picture it wasn't blooming. Next time I go over there I'll look but I am thinking the bottlebrush. They are spectacular plants, I found one today at a local nursery that was small and would grow. I'm thinking of going back for it when I have time to plant. Thank you everyone for helping!!! Thank You!

I agree with all that have said Callistemon 'Little John'. Aside from its dwarf form, it also has a very slight silvery/gray cast to the leaves (that I can see in the pics) that help ID it from other varieties.
