Bottle Brush Plant

2molnars added on January 23, 2018 | Answered

My bottle brush plant only bloomed the first year planted & it has been 2 years since it last bloomed. It has leaves on the top but the other half is brown with no leaves. It sits in the middle of the yard so I know it gets plenty of sun.
