bottlebrush My bottlebrushes have been suffering in the drought of late and whilst they do tend to be hardy plants, they do enjoy a drink and with the recent rains that I’ve had, the one by the driveway has just decided to put on a spectacular show. I find that most bottlebrushes look less lanky with a trim after a flush of flowers. Nipping if off about 5-6 inches also removes unsightly seed pod type things that hang onto the woody branches and makes for a better display the next time around. I have another mauve variety nearby as well but this red beauty takes the cake for breath taking splendour!
