Woodlander’s Red Hardy Bottlebrush
This stunning Woodlander’s Red Hardy Bottlebrush is one of the most cold hardy varieties found to survive our northwest winters. Though it was selected in the South for its tolerance to heat and cold, it is also very happy here in the PNW or anywhere that temperatures don’t drop below 10° F. Features an upright somewhat weeping form, growing about four to five feet tall and three to four feet wide. The bright red flowers appear in late spring and are loved by the hummingbirds. Requires little to no water once established. Plant in the sunniest, hottest spot you have!
