I live in zone 6ish to 7. I want to plant this in a large barrel. Will it survive the winter?

Asked by 19cLinda September 23, 2020
1
Answer

Hello 19cLinda, Thank you for reaching out to us. Our Blue Chip Jr will be hardy in zones 5-9. When planting in a container permanently, you will need to be located two zones above the lowest zone year-round. Otherwise your plant will have to be properly overwintered or planted in a landscape in the fall. I hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us at 734-654-7485 or helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com. Best Regards, Tabatha

Do the butterfly bushes get cut back when they finish blooming in the fall?

Asked by Mjm July 12, 2020
1
Answer

Hello Mjm, Thank you for reaching out to us. We recommend pruning in the spring after the new growth emerges. Many people cut their butterfly bush back in autumn, as part of their fall clean up. But particularly in cold climates, this can leave your butterfly bush more susceptible to damage over winter. I hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us at 734-654-7485 or helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com. Best Regards, Tabatha

Are these treated with pesticides, or are they safe for butterflies?

Asked by Ame July 7, 2020
1
Answer

Hello Ame, Thank you for reaching out to us. We mainly use bio controls to combat against pests on our plants. We do not use any Neonicotinoids, however we do use pesticides occasionally to ensure you receive a healthy plant with not bad bugs on it. The pesticides we do use are Neonicotinoid free and will not cause harm to any pollinators or humans that touch it. We time the usage of pesticides to ensure that it is not in your plants system at the point of ship. We only use pesticides that have less than a 24-hour active period. All chemicals dissipate long before it is put in a box and shipped to you. I hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us at 734-654-7485 or helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com. Best Regards, Tabatha

After 2 years mine is ~ 18-20" wide x 18-20" tall.

In central Texas, the sun can be brutal to some plants. Can this actually take full sun or should it get some shade?

My plant is planted in a bed mixed w/other bushes in full sun on a stone retaining wall. I give them all extra water in August when we have little to no rain and they are all doing fine.

Great plant and Customer Service
I ordered two plants and they arrived healthy. Even though we were in the middle of a heatwave the plants were well watered and well packed prior to leaving the nursery as they arrived and the soil was not dry and the plants were healthy and some branches still had blooms. The plants were also a proper size— not small or anything.

The plant size was bigger than I thought it would be, which is great for me. It is healthy and seems to be thriving where I planted it and is just starting to have some blossoms. Very pleased with this purchase!

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
Butterfly plant arrived in a secure box. Inside the box was a potted plant. The potting soil around the plant was dryer than what would come out of a freshly opened bag of potting soil and the plants leaves were wilted. I immediately watered the plant and let it set overnight to absorb the water. Hoping that the leaves would recover. The next morning I planted it in a pot, set up the drip line and hoped that it would survive. I checked the moisture in the soil daily. A week later, it is surviving. I trimmed off the dead branches, dead flowers and dead leaves so that the new leaves could get all the sunshine the plant needs to survive. It doesn't look like the full plant in the picture, but it is trying by putting out new buds that should be in flower soon. Hopefully it will fill out and look like the picture.

The 1 gal. Lo and Behold Blue Chip Jr. ColorChoice Buddleia Butterfly Bush Shrub arrived extremely well packaged in a box on my doorstep. The plant unpacked easily and was healthy upon arrival. I immediately transplanted the plant from it's container and have been monitoring it's health for the past few weeks. The plant has yet to bloom but is still in excellent health. The plant foliage and branches are about 12 to 14 inches around.

(What's this)
I love to garden, so I was very excited to receive this bush. It came well packaged in a well ventilated card board box that kept it protected during shipping. I popped it out of the container and immediately watered it. Now, it is planted and growing quickly with all the rain that we have had. It is too early for it to flower, but I have attached a photo of what it will look like in a few short months. And... it came from Michigan. How can you go wrong?!

Amazing shape this plant was in when I got it. It came shipped and I never imagined they could do it so well. It came well packaged and ready to plant in the ground. All I had to do was give it some water when I got it out of the box and it is growing away! In fact, I have it sitting in the back yard still in the pot for the past 2 weeks! As the wife has not given instructions on where to plant it. It is growing wonderfully and with the wet spring we are getting I don't even have to water it, hehe....

(What's this)
Very pleased with this product. The plant was delivered in a carton box with some clever designed holes. It is a good size bush shrub. Leaves are very green and the soil was still fairly moist. Good looking shrub, no flowers yet, although some buds are there. Impatient to see the plant blooming! Highly recommend this vendor: plants seem well treated, and I will definitively order through them again.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This plant came fairly well packed. The ends of two side branches broke in transit, but they were small. This plant is 16" tall and about 12" across. Since this grows to 20" to 28", the plant is halfway there. The plant was a little on the dry side when arrived, but not wilted. There were no growing instructions included which would be nice. Though I guess you can find the information on the internet. Just received this plant last week and it is already putting out new growth. Can't wait to see the blooms.
