bottlebrush trees

Zone Houston, TX 77377 | Katherine Brosnan added on July 18, 2017 | Answered

I have 3 of these and two look completely dead with brown leaves and the third one is getting worse every day. Only a few branches are green. Should I cut them down and get rid of them or is there anything I can do to revive them?
