Semi-evergreen Shrub. 3-4 ft. Sun to Part Sun.
Dwarf variety of Butterfly bush with full sized magenta flowers. This compact grower would do well in a container as a patio plant or in the garden where it will grow 3 to 5 feet tall and wide with arching branches. Abundant spikes of magenta flowers that are attractive to butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Drought tolerant and easy to care for, these shrubs will tolerate a wide range of soil types. The long blooming season begins mid-summer and lasts through fall and sometimes to the first frost. Prune early to mid-spring to allow for growth and blooms in the same year. Dead heading will prolong bloom time. Also deer and rabbit resistant. USDA Zone 5-9. May die back completely in Zone 5 but will regrow from the roots.
