Sep 21, Cut bottle brush shrubs back to the ground in spring after you see new growth.

If you are thinking of planting them in your garden, all you need to take, is a little bit of care.

Older shrubs that have few flowers or are starting to look ragged benefit from this rejuvenation pruning. Use a pruning saw to cut branches as close to the ground as you can. The shrub will re-grow from its roots more vigorous than before. Should I cut back bottle brush?

Bottlebrush pruning that helps plants to maintain good health should be looked at in spring and late summer. Prune bottlebrush when flowers fade.

This is usually a safe time for pruning shrubs to guarantee that future blooms aren't damaged. This shrub can be pruned at a node shortly below the tip of the stem.

How do you take care of a bottle brush. Prune to shape, and do this after flowering. Do a heavy trim in early spring. Trim the suckers off the tree form – remove the suckers as soon as possible. When growing in a tree form, the drooping lower branches may need to be cut back.
