Quick Overview:

Bold summer color in a smaller, more compact form makes this the perfect Butterfly Bush for smaller gardens. Nectar-rich, deep magenta flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Blooms last through summer and into fall. Excellent used in perennial beds, wildlife gardens, and mixed borders. Deciduous.

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Becomes weedy and sparse with diminished flowering performance if not grown in full sun. Does poorly in wet conditions. In USDA Zones 5 and 6, this plant will often die to the ground in winter and therefore is often grown therein in the manner of an herbaceous perennial. Even if plants do not die to the ground in winter, they often grow more vigorously, produce superior flowers and maintain better shape if cut close to the ground in late winter each year. Prompt removal of spent flower spikes during the growing season will usually encourage continued bloom until frost.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
