problem with bottle brush trees dying?

15 years ago

need some help please. i have 5 bottle brush trees in my yard. the largest is approx. 6' tall. the problem is that on 2 fo them about half of the tree is dead and the leaves are brown like fall time. i cut that part off and they look fine for a while and then again more dead shows up. on one of them the trunk looks like it is cracking open or spliting if you will. is it from too much water or not enough. we are in a drought here in ga now and very hot temps and it is expected to get worse as summer goes on. plmk what to do with them. i have never grown them before this is the first year for them and i am afraid i will lose them. thanks for the help. vicki
