Product Overview

The Light Show Bottlebrush from the Southern Living Plant Collection is guaranteed to put on a dynamic display in any landscape. The Light Show produces brilliant red bottlebrush blooms tipped in white, which creates a fiber-optic sort of appearance. These blooms begin appearing in spring and continue through summer. Unlike conventional Bottlebrush plants that can grow over 10 ft. tall, the Light Show Bottlebrush reaches only 2 ft. tall to 3 ft. W. Therefore, you can use it in all kinds of new applications. Try it as an accent plant in a mixed garden bed, in a container, as a low-maintenance mass planting or as a foundation plant. Furthermore, this plant is ideal for coastal gardeners thanks to its heat and salt-tolerance. This shrub is hardy from USDA Zones 8-10 and grows best in Full Sun. It tolerates most soil types and qualities, however, adequate drainage is important. Water 2-times to 3-times per week for the first growing season. Fertilize in spring with a slow-release balanced fertilizer. These Light Show Bottlebrush shrubs are well-established in a 2 Gal. plastic pot and tend to range from 12 in. to 18 in. tall when shipped. They are not guaranteed to be in bloom on arrival.

Asked by Chris August 23, 2020

Answer

The Bottlebrush, at least down here in the south, is the fastest growing shrub in my experience. It all is determinate upon so many factors: sunlight, soil, nutrients, ferritization to name a few. The light Show bottlebrush are the smallest of the species, so it may not grow as fast as the larger ones, but I imagine with all conditions perfectly met it can double in size in one whole good season.

I am in the USDA Hardiness zone 7B, can I grow these? Are these with the red flower called Honey ...

Asked by Mitch July 26, 2020

Answer

The Light Show Bottlebrush do not grow in plant zone 7b. The lowest they can survive is 8a. No this is not the Honey Bottlebrush.
