How To Care

When planting your Lo and Behold® Blue Chip jr Butterfly Bush be sure you have the right location and conditions for your new shrub to thrive. Spring and fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing and hot temperatures you can plant almost any time of the year.

Butterfly bushes tolerate full sun and part shade and are adaptable to a variety of soils as long as your soil is well drained. If your soil is nutrient rich your Butterfly bush will not require fertilizer. Fertilize in early spring and when planting if your soil is lacking. Choose a balanced, slow release fertilizer. Water well when your plant is newly planted and during establishment, but otherwise Butterfly bushes are drought tolerant and only require watering during dry, hot periods. Butterfly bushes don't require pruning, but they do tolerate heavy pruning if you choose to do so. No deadheading is needed for continuous blooms with this variety. Mulching is a good choice especially in colder regions to protect the roots from freezing temperatures.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Butterfly bushes in general are quite resilient and only rarely have issues. The Lo and Behold® series from Proven Winners in particular is extremely pest, disease, and deer resistant.

Butterfly Bush

It did arrive with some broken branches, but I think it will repair itself.

Lo and Behold Blue Chip Jr Butterfly Bush 3 gal

Ordered 4 bushes on 8/6, received 2 on the 9th, the other 2 are expected today or tomorrow. Of the two I received, one is in good condition, the other is smaller and has several broken branches. I hope the other 2 are in good condition when I receive them, and the broken one bounces back.

Better than expected

I hesitated to order plants online, but I wanted four Muhly grasses. I ordered this plant just so I didn’t have to pay shipping. Due to heat here I am waiting to plant This plant until fall. While the grasses looked great on arrival, this plant had a number of broken small stems. I figured it might make it so I put it in the house in a sunny window. I also called the company to see their thoughts on my keeping it in the original pot indoors for a few months. The person (not automated system but real human) answered my questions and gave me lots of tips for planting the plant now and later. I was shocked how helpful they were for just one plant. It looks amazing a month later! It’s full of color after changing its pot a few weeks after arrival. The grasses are also doing great despite the incredible heat too.

Butterfly Bush

This was my third order. The bushes came in a timely fashion.( Although I placed two orders on the same day and this order came the day after.) I ordered 3 bushes and they were so tightly packed in the box and I think they had been in the box an extra day: so they looked well past their prime. Some of the branches were broken. I watered them immediately and let them sit and adjust. They were planted the next day and I’m hoping that time will fully revived them. I appreciate the selections your website offers and will probably try again next year.
