Mine hasn't flowered this year or last which has really disappointed me because it flowered beautifully for the first 2 or 3 years. I wonder what the issue is....will have to research it.

Karen that is odd!! usually once they start, they carry on, I think ours was a very young plant!! our white one flowers every year!
Amy that sounds interesting, it will eventually, I am sure!!

I hope so Angela ,we were there one year when their Bottle Brush was in flower it look gorgeous ,I ask if they had seed to sell they said no but if I would like to give them my address they would send me some , I didn't think anymore about it until a couple of years later when an envelope arrived at my house with seed in it from them , wasn't that kind of them !
