They're not just pretty flowers, they're a butterfly buffet.
These mid-size shrubs have become a sensation in American gardens, and why not? 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.
