Bottlebrush for Birds

Gardening Reference » Gardening in 2006

My bottlebrush just bloomed about 100 flowers at once (no not kidding, I tried to count). Now the orioles and some hummers have arrived. I need to know if I should deadhead this bottlebrush. It looks rather scragly (?) and I don't know what part is attracting the birds, the flowers or the after-flowers or both. Help, I can't even find anything on the internet about deadheading bottlebrush. Thanks, Lin

If those birds are coming its probably the blooms. I'd leave them till the birds lose interest
