Plant Description

This is a dwarf version of our stunning (and large) bottlebrush buckeye. This one matures to around 4-5’ tall and at least as wide, and flowers earlier, in late spring and early summer. Typical bottlebrush flowers are 15” long, puffy, creamy white spikes that swallowtails swarm to. Autumn leaves turn a nice golden yellow before falling off. Plant this great dwarf bottlebrush in moist to dry part shade where you want a spreading shrub that doesn’t get very tall. It is long lived, tougher than nails, and very deer resistant. Try it along a woods edge with anemones, amsonia, and eared coreopsis. New this year!
