I don't have a bog area actually. It's just that I have really sandy soil except for some of my raised beds which are amended. I keep losing butterfly bushes and with last year's drought, I don't expect I'll plant one again. I was just wondering how it would do as a marginal because I'm not likely to keep it well watered if we have another season like last year.
I have tried at lest 8 butterfly shrubs and lost all of them. They were all planted in beds. One in partial shade/sun. Some in full sun. Guess they just don't like this area. I keep my soil amended with cow manure and fertilize twice a year but hasn't helped. At last roundup I was told there is a variety just for Fl. I rec'd one but it doesn't look like its going to make it either. I saw a sign once that said "I tried but it died". I should get that for my butterfly shrubs. LOL
