Bottle brush plant

Zone Leesburg Fl | DELL1953 added on August 9, 2016 | Answered

Planted it in late April. Most of the old leaves have fallen off but it doesn't seem to be getting many new ones. Also, the red bottle brush has disappeared. What am I doing wrong?

This could be transplant shock. See this article for more information:

Also make sure the plant is located in a healthy environment for the bottle brush:
