it looks so tiny
newly planted in March
First bud starting to show (beg of April)
End of April Bloom on Red Butterfly Bush
This is a new plant for me, it was just planted in March of 2009. This Royal Red bush should reach
a height of 8 ft. to 10 ft and attract butterflies with it's dark red-purple blooms.
This plant was a mail order plant, as I had difficulty locating it in this area. It has been in the ground 3 weeks when it produced it's first bud. I was very happy to see the first bloom by the end of April. This plant is tiny, but obviously healthy.
I will update this page as the plant grows and flowers.
Also Known as:
