This butterfly bush is truly stunning in the landscape! The structure of the plant is very upright and somewhat slender, so it is a nice specimen for the center of a large pot. It can be used in those difficult areas where you need some height, but don’t have much horizontal space. The overall height is no more than 6 feet, so it is a well behaved selection. The blooms on this butterfly are an amazing shade of violet – cranberry pink, you can really pick it out in the landscape. The flowers are long and elegant, and very fragrant. They really show up in the landscape. If you prune off the spent flowers, you will be rewarded with a second and even third flush of flowers from early June until early November!
