Bottle Brush Trees

Dwarf Bottle Brush added on April 25, 2015 | Answered

Dwarf bottle brush planted about 2 weeks ago does not look good. It is in a sunny location in a very large pot. Water every 4-5 days. The blooms are turning dark and I don't see new ones coming on.

Your dwarf bottle brush probably experienced a little bit of transplant shock. The best thing you can do for it right now is to give it proper care and a little patience. Be careful not to overwater - allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Also, be sure that it isn't exposed to temperatures below 45°F/7°C as this plant won't tolerate the cold.
