    This lovely native plant lends an informal, natural charm anywhere it is planted. It is especially nice grouped under trees, or planted as a low hedge. It can also be incorporated into flower gardens or wildlife gardens.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Bottlebrush is very easy to care for - it prefers average soil and at least four hours of sun each day. It can grow well in shadier conditions, however, it may not flower as prolifically and fall color may not be quite as brilliant in very deep shade. 

    This plant should has an appealing natural habit and is not suited to being cut back or trimmed regularly.

    • Summer or fall, the leaf color is a great addition. In fall, it is a show stopper. In spring and summer, the leaf color complements reds and purples. I bought it in the small quart size and have it at present in patio containers, but I know exactly where it will go in the garden when it "grows up".
