#ProPlantTips for Care: 

Butterfly Bush Care is pretty simple and easy. Don’t be stressed! We have a few things for you to keep in mind.

  • Provide the Lavender Cascade Butterfly Bush with a full sun location! This is where it performs best, and the colors look magnificent when they sparkle in the sunlight.
  • Many people wonder when to prune Butterfly Bushes. Well, Butterfly Bush pruning is important so the bush grows back every year with full and healthy blooms. Prune back all stems hard each spring just before it starts to grow again!
  • If you live in a colder zone, it may die down all the way during the frosts and quickly regrow from the roots–these things grow quick!
  • Remember to plant this bush in well drained soil so the roots don’t drown in water, yet always have moisture to feel nourished!
