This plant resists both deer and rabbits, but it will attract pollinators to your garden. Enjoy the wonderful sight, as butterflies come to sip nectar from this lovely food source.

In colder growing zones, this plant will die back to the ground in winter. Cut them back to ground level in early spring, and thrill to the sight of new spring growth. It will grow quickly back to the mature size in a single season.

If they are in containers in a cold zone, plan to move the containers to an unheated, protected area, such as a garage or shed for winter.

The container should be at least 12″ in size. For best results in a larger container, purchase 3 or more plants and dig them in a triangle formation.

This plant loves the sun! Plant it where it can soak in the sunshine. It looks lovely among other flowering perennials as a mixed border. It’s fast-growing, so expect it to give your garden border a full and lively look in no time.

In addition to full sun, Butterfly Bush needs well-drained, medium moisture soil to grow to its fullest potential.
