The Q&A Archives: Help with a Crimson Bottlebrush

Question: I have a Crimson Bottlebrush that has only really bloomed once and it does not appear to be very healthy. I live in San Antonio, Tx. What can I do to help this Bottlebrush get healthy and bloom more?

Answer: Sylvia,

Moderate soil moisture (don't keep it too wet), a little fertilizer in spring and early summer (about 1/4 cup in a 4 ft. diameter area around each plant), and plenty of sunlight are the keys to success with bottlebrush.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
