Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral weedsfree On Oct 7, 2014, weedsfree from Magna, UT (Zone 7a) wrote:

This is my third time trying butterfly bush but the first time with this one and buying one so large. It is already 2' tall or so. When I went to the nursery, this cultivar was doing the best. The others they had must have been earlier bloomers. Either that or they have outgrown the pots. The ones I bought still have vibrant flowers on them and they are nicely fragrant. Smells a little like lilacs. I am excited to try this one as I was told at the garden center that they don't mind heat and they bloom from summer, right up to a freeze. There were a couple of people there that were talking about how this cultivar was their favorite. I can only dream and hope that this will be mine too. We shall see what happens after it's first winter. I will update my rating in the spring.
