Comments: This bottlebrush produces long pendant branches with pastel pink flowers that fade to a lighter pink over time. This bottlebrush is not commonly grown but worthy of much more use as a specimen plant in the garden because of the handsome narrow leaves and delicate pink bottlebrush-like flowers. Provide full sunlight and a well drained soil. Plants can tolerate light freezes.
