Others: Bottlebrush Weeping
This popular evergreen tree has a dense, multi-trunked, low-branching, pendulous growth habit and a moderate growth rate. Mature specimens can reach 25- to 30-feet tall in 30 years, but most trees are seen 15- to 20-feet high and wide. The narrow, light green, 3- to 4-inch-long leaves tend to grow only at the ends of the long, hanging branches, creating a weeping effect. The cylindrical, bright scarlet blooms, three to five inches long and 1-inch wide, are composed of multiple, long, bristlelike stamens.
Amount of Sunlight: Full sun / light shade
Amount of Water: Water frequently after planting. Once established this tree is tolerant of short periods of drought.
Soil Conditions: Moist, well-drained soil
Cold Hardiness Zone: 9B-11
Don't plant this in wet soil. Too much moisture may cause cankers or root rots. Another problem that the tree can face is the Sphaeropsis gall. Cut off any branches infected with a gall to help stop the spread. You will need to train it to a tree form so it will exhibit the weeping shape. Otherwise it can turn into a shrub that can be used as a hedge.
