bottle brush

My bottle brush seems to be dying. The flowers and leaves are turning brown. I bought it about 3 weeks ago and planted in pot. At first it was fine but now looks awful. Can you help?

    Your Bottle Brush needs full sun growing location.
    This shrub can get quite large, though some compact varieties may do fine in containers.
    Check the soil, the soil should be moist but never soggy.
    Make sure the pots have adequate drainage.
