It is fragrant, drought tolerant, attracts pollinators, and resists deer and rabbits.

        Sad on arrival but making a comeback
        I ordered three of these and they were very bedraggled and sad when they arrived. I wasn’t sure they would live, but all three have bounced back and have grown leaves in the last month since being planted. No flowers yet, but just having foliage is an accomplishment at this point. They look like they will flourish now.

          I planted it after our last frost. It is in the ground but is dead. I bought another butterfly bush product and it is also dead. I would love a refund since they were both expensive. I can send photos if you need them.

          Plant arrived a little dry and the soil had fallen out of the pot. I wasn't sure it would make it. It did! I planted it, and it looks really good. Still small, but blooming.

          I am very happy with my purchase of this new variety of butterfly bush. It has rooted down and is blooming. Hopefully, it will make it thru our winter.

          I was so surprised!
          Thank you so much for sending me a beautiful and healthy plant. It’s the fourth butterfly bush I’ve planted; the others that came did not last a month! I am trusting that YOUR product is really the winner! I am so pleased to see such a beautiful luxurious plant delivered in a prompt manner and I’m so hoping it will last me for a long time. Keep up the good work !

            A wilted mess
            Was hoping for a healthy plant to arrive, instead it was rotting with branches falling apart. Planted it 3 days ago just to see if new soil would help. It's not looking like it will make it. So disappointed!!
