Butterfly Bush are shrubs that have become a sensation in American gardens. They're easy to grow, bloom beautifully, and are absolute magnets for butterflies. It's all because of a certain scent this species of shrub emits, and when a flying insect senses it, it's irresistible. Many gardeners report scores of butterflies at one time when the bushes are in full bloom.

They're easy to grow, and form a fountain-like mass of flowers for a long period. Many plant several colors close together and the effect as they grow is of one large bush with flowers in several hues. They're so beautiful, people (especially kids) love Butterfly Bushes as much as the butterflies.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
