Amazing! Review by Lily
I have never seen so many butterflies or hummingbirds in my yard! The Black Knight Butterfly bush is just amazing, and it really doesn't need any care at all.

Butterfly bush Review by winterhorizon
I was given a butterfly bush about 2 years ago. I planted it outdoors in a large box. Since then I virtually ignored it and it did wondrous. It has grown larger each passing season and always flowers. It seems very easy to maintain. I am now paying more attention to it as I am hope to create an arbor with its beautiful flowering branches.
