Great Design Plant: Dwarf Bottlebrush

What Houzz contributors are saying:

How to use it. Use dwarf bottlebrush to attract hummingbirds and other pollinators, to add interest to herb gardens alongside the muted hues of lavender and rosemary, or as an edging to line garden beds and paths. The softly textured leaves are shown off to best effect when multiple plants are grown together, but since this plant's cost ($20 to $30 each) can be prohibitive, consider popping them into flowerbeds one at a time as money allows. Just consider yourself warned; if you plant just one, you're likely to fall in love and plant more before long.
