2 gal. Pink Delight Butterfly Bush Plant

$28.49 /each

Frequently Bought Together

Product Overview

Strong growing, drought tolerant, deciduous shrub with arching branches of gray-green foliage. Spike-like, deep pink flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds from early summer to frost. Prefers well drained, moist, fertile soil in full sun. In northern climates, plants die back in winter so treat as a perennial, and trim to 6-8 in. height in early spring. The plant will quickly reach 5 ft. tall. Try pairing with a darker blooming or a white Butterfly Bush to achieve a beautiful well-rounded look to the landscape. We're sorry, but due to state regulations, this plant cannot be shipped to Oregon, South Carolina, or Washington.

  • Easy to grow in almost any soil
  • Deep pink flowers from summer to frost
  • Butterfly and hummingbird magnet

  • We're sorry, but due to state regulations, this plant cannot be shipped to Oregon, South Carolina, or Washington
  • This plant ships as a bare root plant with no soil and no pot when shipped to Arizona, California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, and Utah
  • When shipped as a bare root plant, the Shake&Shipsystem will be used to remove soil from the roots, thus increasing the root tip surface area, which in turn, greatly enhances the ability of the plant to rapidly establish itself in the new environment

The plant arrived today. It is in sad shape. The leaves are all drooping. Think it must have suffered heat stroke. What can I do?

Answer: 
Hello. Shipping can be very stressful on a plant but the Butterfly Bush is very hardy and can usually bounce back quite quickly. Be sure the roots do not dry out, this is very important. Keep the plant in a shaded area until it acclimates to your area, keep in its current pot or temporarily plant in the ground. Do not soak the roots in water, rather water well after planting. Water again and again each Read More
Hello. Shipping can be very stressful on a plant but the Butterfly Bush is very hardy and can usually bounce back quite quickly. Be sure the roots do not dry out, this is very important. Keep the plant in a shaded area until it acclimates to your area, keep in its current pot or temporarily plant in the ground. Do not soak the roots in water, rather water well after planting. Water again and again each time the soil is dry to the touch 4" down into the soil. After a few days, the plant should have vigor in its leaves and noticeable "perk up". At this time, move the plant to its permanent location and plant according to the box instructions. Please let us know if you need additional assistance. Read Less

There are a lot of Japanese Beetles here in North Carolina--endless spraying to keep many flowering plants. How resistant to insects is this bush, and what products will be needed to have this plant grove and survive?

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. Butterfly Bushes usually have no serious insect or disease problems. Japanese beetles, weevil, spider mites are all possible. A systemic insecticide such as Orthene could be considered for control, keeping in mind that beneficial insects, such as bees and butterflies, are attracted to the flowers as well.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bare root I didn't notice when I ordered this plant that it was to be shipped bare root. I bought it in July and it was fully leafed out, so it was touch and go for a while, especially with the hot weather we had this year. But the plant seems to have survived (I staked a tent of Tyvek around it to keep it out of the full sun). Since it is shipped bare root, you would be better off ordering it in the early spring or late fall, to give it a chance to develop some root structure before the hot weather of summer. July 23, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very beautiful Very beautiful blooms. I thought that since I was planting them in southern Arizona maybe they couldnt handle the harsh sun. So I planted this one so it only gets the morning sun. It is doing ok but the others I planted in direct sun are doing better. So I just need to transplant this one and put it in direct sun like the tag says. But it is very beautiful. September 7, 2011
