We purchase this tree and were told that it was a bottle brush tree. Is it in the same bottle brush family?

Yes, it looks like a bottlebrush (Callistemon). As for which one--you'll have to post some pictures when it blooms to be sure.

Thank you, we planted the tree in Feb. of '11 but it never did bloom, maybe our drought in Texas affected it.

Shrubs often won't bloom the first year they're planted, drought or not. They always focus on getting their roots going first. Sometimes they won't even bloom much in the 2nd year, but by year 3 you'll get a much better show. They're very drought tolerant once they're established so once it's got its roots going really well you should see blooms even in a dry year.

From the fruiting capsules on the stems, it has bloomed before...but as Ecrane stated, they do need time to become established. here is a bit of general info for you.
