Sweep into summer with Japanese Bottlebrush. Prepare to be blown away by their thick, feathery strands of flowers as they whimsically float atop graceful 30- to 36-inch tall stems. Resembling fuzzy caterpillars, the flowers' unique shape and soft, pettable texture are enhanced by their bold carmine pink hue, which will brighten up your garden throughout the summer.

To ensure their success, plant your bottle brush plants in the spring. Bury your plants just below the level of the soil, about 18 to 24 inches apart. These hardy, perennial flowers will grow in almost any sunny or partially shady area with well-drained clay, loamy or sandy soil. They thrive in hardiness zones 4 through 9 and are rabbit and insect resistant.

Use this Dutch-sourced strain of Sanguisorba obtusa to add some eclectic texture to back borders. Consider arranging them behind colourful carpets of irises or lilies, or plant them in containers and decorate porches and courtyards. They require almost no maintenance during their blooming season and will tolerate harsh droughts, which makes them an excellent option for mass planting in prairies and other dry, open spaces. Their long-lasting blooms are also great for naturalizing. Create a quirky pink paradise with Japanese Bottlebrush.
