This is one of the few white flowered bottlebrush available for gardeners. It is an upright shrub that flowers profusely in spring and then flowers again in summer and autumn with this repeat flowering being another useful attribute. It can be grown as a feature or screen plant but can also be trimmed into a formal hedge. It is an extremely adaptable plant that will thrive in most soil types and should be lightly trimmed immediately after flowering.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
