Help With Bottle Brush Plant

David Henderson added on May 8, 2018 | Answered

I have a long established bottle brush plant which has been great for several years until this year (May 2018) when it seems to have suffered a lot. Can you help please, I attach photos of the plant showing areas of brown leaves and some green leaves right in the centre of the plant
