Bottlebrush is a shrub that is already beloved for its magnificent fall colors, but Legend of the Fall outdoes itself with its autumnal show. The “best in show” of all bottlebrushes, Legend of the Fall features leaves that blaze vibrant red as fall settles in. Legend of the Fall Bottlebrush looks beautiful in the spring and summer, too. Sweet-smelling white flowers bloom in the spring, showing off the bottlebrush blooms that give the shrub its name. In the summer, this hardy native shrub looks green and lush in a variety of garden locations.

Bottlebrush is native to North America and is both shade tolerant and deer resistant. It is often used in shady gardens under or around large trees, because it proves much more tolerant of shade than other shrub varieties. It is a lovely addition to sunny gardens, as well. The informal charm of the bottlebrush is the perfect addition to wildflower gardens, native plantings, and wildlife gardens. It is a medium-sized shrub that also looks lovely when used for a hedge or border.

Legend Of The Fall® Bottlebrush Care

Bottlebrush are typically very easy to care for and require very little maintenance to keep them thriving in the garden. It prefers average soil and average moisture. They thrive in a variety of climates in Zones 5-9. While it is very shade tolerant, it performs best with four hours or more of sunlight per day. When planted in deep shade, the fall colors will not be as brilliant and the flowers won’t be as prolific as it would be with more sunlight.

Bottlebrush does not need to be pruned regularly. In fact, you may want to avoid trimming and pruning altogether, as regular pruning can affect its natural growth habit. Removing a branch here or there if it is damaged or seems out of place won’t harm the plant.

Legend Of The Fall® Bottlebrush Spacing

Legend of the Fall Bottlebrush can grow up to 60” tall and wide at maturity. It is a medium-sized shrub that will need 48-60” of space from other plants. Plant them closer together to form a hedge, and further apart when you are setting it apart as a specific plant.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
