Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral roybird On May 8, 2008, roybird from Santa Fe, NM wrote:

Flutterby blooms prolifically but has weak stems. It wants to climb but has not filled out very well. After growing it for about 5 or 6 years, I'd say it is not ideal for our Rocky Mountain climate. It does survive, though, and attracts butterflies.

In a nutshell, I would definitely praise "Flutterbye" for it's perpetual bloom, appearance, and tenacity! I have been growing this beauty for at least 15 yrs and am very happy to have it in my collection.......Elaine
