Blackthorn Bottlebrush Description

Adds whimsy and charming, late-season colour to the garden
The feathery, brush-like spikes on Blackthorn Bottlebrush give this sun-loving perennial a unique and charming look. The purple-red flower clusters sit atop thin, wiry stems that arch above the lacy, green leaves—and they give the appearance of caterpillars perched on the branches. When the breeze blows, the flower spikes sway in the wind. The long-lasting blooms keep their colour and add whimsy to indoor floral arrangements. For all its charm, Blackthorn Bottlebrush is a very easy perennial to grow and requires little maintenance. It's drought tolerant, and deer, rabbits and insects tend to avoid it. This versatile plant is ideal for borders, containers, prairie plantings and naturalized areas.
