A Heavy Display of Vibrant Red Blooms Throughout Multiple Seasons

The Red Cluster Bottlebrush is a show-stopping addition to any garden landscape. Bursting with vibrant red blooms twice a year, this heavy- and long-blooming shrub is a favorite among gardeners.

Whether you're looking to create a striking hedge, shape it into a small single-trunk tree, or let it flourish as a multi-trunk specimen, this plant offers endless possibilities. It also attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and nectar-feeding birds, welcoming lots of biodiversity to your garden.

Once established, the Red Cluster Bottlebrush requires minimal upkeep. Plus, it's drought-resistant, ensuring it thrives even in dry conditions.

From its cylindrical, brush-like flowers to its ability to thrive in warm climates and bask in sunlight, this plant promises to be a standout feature in any outdoor space. Grow your Red Cluster Bottlebrush today!

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Find an area in your yard that receives full sun (about 6-8 hours per day) and with soil that is well-draining. Dig a hole twice the size of your Red Cluster Bottlebrush root ball. Backfill the hole with top soil then tamp down and water to establish.

2. Watering: Water regularly during the first growing season to establish its root system, about once per week. You can reduce the frequency of watering once the plant is established. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check its surrounding soil, down to about 2 or 3 inches. If the soil is dry in this area, it’s time to water your plant.

3. Fertilizing:  Fertilize in spring, summer, and fall with a high-quality granular fertilizer.

4. Pruning:  To maintain the desired shape and size cut back in late March to encourage dense and bushy growth. Water your Bottlebrush at least an hour before doing any pruning.
