Description for Bottle Brush

Bottlebrush plants (Callistemon) are evergreen shrubs that require minimal care and produce long, colorful flowers with spiky filaments. They're ideal as border plants, as hedging or in a container. There are several cultivars of bottlebrush plants such as red, dwarf and weeping, and they all require similar care. Bottlebrush is a perennial shrub that resists pests and diseases, tolerates most well-drained soils, requires little watering and prefers full sun.

Planting and care

Outdoors, plant bottlebrush shrubs in a sunny location. The plants aren’t picky about the soil type as long as it is well drained. If the soil is very poor, enrich with compost at planting time. Once established, bottlebrush plants tolerate drought and moderate salt spray.

Caring for Bottle Brush

  • Fertilize bottlebrush plants with 10-10-10 fertilizer in the spring before new growth begins.
  • Water bottlebrush plants deeply about once a week during the first growing season to help establish the roots.
  • Reduce watering after the plant finishes blooming at the end of summer since bottlebrush is very drought-resistant.
  • Weeping bottlebrush requires more water during the growing season, so water it more often during hot or dry periods to keep the soil moist but not soggy.
  • Trim off overgrown shoots and shape the plant with pruning shears in the fall once the flowers are finished blooming.
