Q:Why did my plant arrive dead?
by|Sep 10, 2022

Answer This Question

A:  I’m sorry your butterfly bush Buddleia arrived dead. They are usually really good. I absolutely love this bush. I have ~10 different ones and even the butterflies flock to this bush! You will get a replacement they honor their merchandise and so will the nursery! Call and ask for a replacement. Hopefully they still have this one available!

      Answer This Question

      A:  It is very inviting to butterflies and gaming birds.  It is heat tolerant too

        A:  In my experience, no. This is NOT one of the invasive varieties (stay away from yellow & orange blooms) & none of the numerous butterflies who visit & enjoy my butterfly bush are harmed in the least. I also enjoy it tremendously because the scent is absolutely wonderful. Very pleased with mine.

          A:  Hello Chica, thank you for asking. We are happy to help! Although some butterfly bushes are invasive, Proven Winners has bred the invasiveness out of the plants so that it has only the good qualities and none of the bad.

              Q:Are butterfly bushes hardy in Indiana and how do I protect them over the winter?
              by|Jul 25, 2022
              1 Answer
              Answer This Question

              A:  Yes, I believe they’re hardy to zone 5.  I’m in 6a, in NE Ohio, so your zone should be close to or the same as mine. I don’t protect them over winter, and they come back fine.

Red The Double Knock Out Rose Bush with Red Flowers and PROVEN WINNERS 4.5 in. Qt. Wine and Roses Reblooming Weigela (Florida) Live Shrub, Pink Flowers and Dark Purple Foliage.

                  Not a winner for me
                  I ordered a pant online picked up from store and planted it right away. It wasn't doing so well but I wanted blooms before I received my shipment of butterflies. I went to the store and purchased 2 more plants, was told maybe I watered the first plant too much. As instructed, I placed the new plants in full sunlight, watered them a little less and nothing. My plants did not grow, thrive or bloom. Maybe it's the zone, or soil but I am not happy at all with my purchase. What's HD return policy

                    Healthy and Beautiful
                    I received these plants a few days ago. Upon opening, they are in perfect condition. They were green and perky. There wasn't one wilted leaf. The soil was drenched in water, which I'm assuming was to keep them hydrated for shipping. I have had many butterfly bushes in the past and they are very hardy plants. Once established, these are so easy to take care of. I haven't planted them yet because it's been raining here, but plan to within the next few days. Remember, these do best in full sun. You will get more blooms and growth. I am very happy with my purchase.

                      The plants arrived more dead than dead. Really unbelievable that you would send something that was dead a long time ago. Will never buy from Home Depot again! Certainly not met expectations!!!

                            Even though the plant was small when received, it was very healthy looking. Now, only two weeks after planting it has already got three or more wine colored blooms . A very good surprise! I am looking forward to years of pleasure watching beautiful butterflies find a resting spot on this bush. Thank you!
