Butterfly Bushes

Butterfly bushes (Buddleja) are easy to grow shrubs with colorful flowers that bloom most of the summer into the fall. They are attractive to butterflies and most are very fragrant.

Deadheading Butterfly Bushes is a chore but they don’t need much else except cutting back when they are dormant.

It will take 15 minutes to deadhead this Buddleja but that will enable it to produce many more flowers later.
