Each fuzzy red flower resembling (what else) a bottle brush attracts butterflies and hummingbirds, making this plant a good choice for a butterfly garden.
Honeybees love the blossoms as well. Though the bees are busy doing their job, many people are afraid of them so don’t place this plant right next to a door or too close to a walkway.
You can encourage the Red Cluster bottlebrush to grow into a handsome multi-trunk tree by keeping the base of the plant free of new shoots.
