The fragrant, arching clusters of Butterfly Bush are irresistible to hummingbirds and butterflies. This shrub is best treated like perennials and pruned back hard each spring, to maintain a compact, bushy habit.
Butterfly Bush Growing and Maintenance Tips
Plant in a well-drained soil, in full sun. Removing spent flower spikes will promote additional blooming. Prune back in late winter to maintain shape, and encourage growth and flowering for the following season.
