Butterfly Garden Plant #2
A Butterfly Bush is staple in a Butterfly Garden. This variety has reached about 8 feet in height by 3 feet across, I have 3 other butterfly bushes but are much smaller still. I prune back early spring and patiently wait for spring growth. The purple flowers bloomed less than a week ago. This perennial loves a sunny area and will thrive year after year.
The Butterflies and Hummingbirds absolutely love this plant so be sure to plant one that you can see from an indoor window.
