Many gardeners’ minds immediately go to “shrubs” when they think of planting bushes. Shrubs provide shade, privacy, and protection for the garden. Yet, Butterfly Bushes are a spectacular alternative to the classic shrub and will provide the same benefits for the garden, with added delights!
Butterfly Bushes emit a sweet fragrance that isn’t just heavenly for our noses, but attracts beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden. We planted one right outside our window at American Meadows and were amazed at the multitude of wildlife that it brought for us to enjoy.
We are carrying three new Butterfly Bushes this year that I am excited to try, not only for their looks but for their yummy-sounding names! Try the Butterfly Bush Flutterby Peach Cobbler, Butterfly Bush Flutterby Grande Vanilla, or Butterfly Bush Flutterby Blueberry Cobbler. These bushes can also provide privacy, shade, and protection for the garden.
