Description
 
Bottlebrush.  This is a selected form of the more cold hardy species and has 5" magenta bottlebrush flowers.  This would thrive against a hot south wall and will tolerate a range of soils including fairly wet.  Evergreen and so far not munched by deer.  We've had this freeze to the ground in the disaster that was November 2010 but it regrew from the base.  Our plant was growing in rich soil and was still in active growth when it got hammered.  Leaner conditions going into fall will impart more cold tolerance.
