Bottlebrush plant - looks like its dying

Probably too dry.

When you planted them were the roots cramped in the pot? If so these need teasing out as they wouldnt be able to venture out into the soil to reach moisture and the rootball would stay in the same place.

Lucky you lot. I'm still waiting for some rain.

if its at the very bottom I wouldnt worry too much. Lillies do this naturally.

Looks perfectly fine to me. Due to the nature of the British climate they do go like that on the ends of the leaves.

Nothing to worry about. Just make sure it doesnt dry out too much

something to knock them on to, then your foot to squash them

I heard 1 massive lightning strike, sounded like it was in the garden at about 1:45am.

No rain to speak of though. Its getting increasingly dry here, no significant rain since May.

Its very nice. Is it tuberous? Or have you over-wintered it?

I have some very large Tuberous Begonias now, the leaves are giants.
