That looks like a Bottlebrush shrub to me.

Here's some info on them... Bottlebrush

I think they are very pretty and the butterflies seem to love them [thumb]

If you can revive them I would love some seeds from them. I didn't know their was a bush variety I thought they were trees lol. I'm such a beginner.

The bottle brush tree is very prone to fungal stem galls and cankers.
