If red is one of your favourite colours, then choose Scarlet Bottlebrush for your garden! This evengreen bush can grow well in temperate climates. With its bright red brush-like flowers, this plant will be a nice eyecatcher.
You can easily prune young plants, which will boost their density over time. Older Bottlebrushes can be pruned in stages during their growing season, which lasts from spring until september.
This plant is not well known for its winterhardiness. It is best kept protected, preferably inside a greenhouse, once temperatures go below 0. Keeping this plant in a sheltered place is also better for the Bottlebrush's health.
