Product Description

Who could resist touching the fluffy red cylindrical flower heads that drip from the branches of this evergreen shrub during late spring and summer? Not many. But this native of Australia has more going for it than just its stroke me qualities.  

The tiny leaves that cover its arching branches release a delicious lemony scent when brushed and its arching branches provide all year round interest, wherever you plant it its perfect as specimen in the lawn, grown against a wall or fence, or planted in large pots. A real sun lover, give it the brightest spot possible.

You need to water a bottlebrush for its first season, but when established plants are extremely drought tolerant. Despite heralding from warmer climes this plant is incredibly tough and will easily cope with temperatures down to -5C protect it in harder winters by covering with fleece or grow in pots so it can be moved indoors (a shed, front porch, garage or conservatory would be ideal).

2 of the 3 plants were tall but were bent over to fit in the box, none of them looked particularly healthy.
Product:
Plant quite dehydrated when it arrived, the weather was very hot and that added to the condition. I have repotted and fed it and that has helped, and it is now perking up.
YouGarden Comments
Thanks again for your order. I am sorry to hear that it wasn't in the best condition on arrival. It does sound like the hot weather affected your plants, however they do usually make a full recovery as you have stated. If the plant does not thrive, please get in touch and let us know.

the plant arrived at the time I was advised it would and in spite of being in a large box which allowed it to move around not all of the red had come off.
Product:
The plant is lovely and has started to show signs of new growth already its just a shame that its red "spines ?" came off.

Past experience has been good with this company (hence I continue to rate them as 'Good') however, on this occasion the two plants I ordered were crudely stuck together resulting in a number of damaged lower stems and above average number of torn leaves
Product:
These are attractive plants (I purchased two) but they arrived somewhat leggy and with damage to the lower parts of the stem. They have been planted out and will, hopefully, recover. If I could rate them as 'hopefully satisfactory'; as opposed to'good' I would
