Butterfly Bush Plant Information
The butterfly bush is widely used as an ornamental plant. Benefits to the garden include its ability to attract humming birds, butterflies, other pollinators and beneficial insects. The butterfly bush is an awesome plant for attracting beneficial insects and pollinators to your garden. When planted near a garden these beneficial insects help increase pollination and fruit production.
Butterfly bush is a deciduous to semi-evergreen shrub with a weeping form. At my house in zone 7a most of the leaves usually stay on year round. If we get a cold snap down into the single digits, then it may lose all of its leaves. Butterfly bushes have opposite, 6-10 in, lance-shaped gray-green leaves on long arching stems.
Flowers are borne on cone-shaped clusters and have a fruity scent. Remove spent flower spikes to encourage new shoots and flower buds. Since they bloom on new wood, even if there is no die-back, cut them back to the ground every spring. Even when you cut them to the ground they will still grow up to 8 foot in a single growing season.
This plant is hardy in zones 5-10 and at maturity can be 6-12ft. The butterfly bush (Buddleia davidii) is a native of China, likes full sun, fertile, well-drained soil.
