How To Care

When planting your 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 to part shade and are adaptable to any soil that drains well. If your soil is nutrient rich your Butterfly bush will not require fertilizer. Fertilize in early spring and when planting if your soil is nutrient poor. Choose a balanced slow release fertilizer. Keep the soil moist when your plant is newly planted, but otherwise Butterfly bushes are drought tolerant and only require watering during dry, hot periods. Butterfly bushes don't require pruning, but if you would like to maintain size, these shrubs tolerate heavy pruning. In cooler climates where this shrub acts more like a perennial, trim within a couple inches of the ground in late winter or early spring. Mulching is a good choice especially in colder regions to protect the roots from freezing temperatures.

Great Plant & Service!

I wanted to buy this specific buddleia for my mom's 70th birthday. After a very difficult and disappointing interaction with a different major plant retailer (plant lost in the mail, re-issued only to discover it's actually out of stick, trouble getting refund) I found Planting Tree. Not only did they still have this type of buddleia in stock, it was less expensive, shipped very quickly, was expertly and carefully packed, and is a lovely plant. I'm very glad I found Planting Tree and will absolutely go to you before the major gardening suppliers next time.

The Miss Molly Butterfly Bush arrived along with the two (2) other plants that I ordered. Unfortunately, the Butterfly bush was damaged either during packing or shipment. Several stems were broken and it was overall in bad shape. However, we were able to save this bush and we are monitoring its progress. It is too early to tell if this wonderful plant is going to survive. I will keep you informed as to its progress. Kyle Loftis

Butterfly activity already.

The bush are in great condition and perked up the day after I put it in my garden. Love the color and size. It fits in a smaller butterfly area.
