#ProPlantTips for Care:

Butterfly Bushes are low-maintenance shrubs that are perfect for new and busy gardeners alike! Plant in full sun throughout USDA hardiness zones 5 to 9. Plant your Lo & Behold® in full sun with well-drained soil. While Buddleia are low-water usage but do appreciate supplemental moisture during drought and the summer months to keep the flowers returning until frost. Provide a 3-4 inch deep layer of arborist mulch to support your shrub's root system. Like most butterfly favorites, this deciduous plant is drought tolerant and not on any deer's menu of favorite snacks.

Pink Micro Chip never needs deadheading and is very low maintenance. Pruning in early spring will ensure a dense, more floriferous shrub, but isn't necessary. In cold climates, you will want to cut these plants back to the ground before spring because these plants act more like herbaceous perennials. However, when grown in warm growing zones, these woody shrubs only need an early spring trim will help ensure the best performance and best flowers.

It doesn't produce seeds, so it's not invasive like some other varieties (and certainly less messy). Nature Hills uses Plant Sentry™ to limit the sale of any plants in threatened areas, but there are no concerns about that with this sterile plant!
