Bottlebrush "bush" flowers.
About 10 years ago I bought a plant called, on the tag, a bottlebrush bush. I put it in the backyard next to a Japanese maple and a gingko tree. Well the bush is now taller than either of the other two and covers itself with these flowers every Spring. As you may have guessed by now, I am not one to research which plant I'll buy. My method is 1. Go to the nursery and walk around. 2. Buy new plants without regard to remaining room in the garden. 3. Find a place for them. Seems to work.
