Bottle Brush Tree

Wildly fluctuating temperatures during this south coastal Texas winter are taking their toll on my large Bottle Brush. There has not been overmuch rain. Is there something I can do to help it weather the see-saw weather?

Here is an article for more information on the care of the plant:
