A friend gave me a butterfly bush. It is covered with buds. The tag shows the color, but I'm anxious to see it for real. Sometimes the tags aren't correct. We had a butterfly bush in one place we lived. The directions I read said to leave the dead blooms on because they are gorgeous in a winter frost or snow...and they were.
I haven't decided where to put it, so it will have to stay on the porch for a bit until I decide where it will look best to me.
