Q.Bottle Brush Plant

Zone Panama City Beach, 32407 | 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.

It is likely that there is too much nitrogen in the soil. You can offset this by adding potassium and phosphorus, or adding dolomitic lime to the soil to make the nitrogen less available.
