Quick Overview:

‘Orchid Annie’ maintains a compact, refined habit. 8” orchid purple flower panicles appear above a perfect rounded shrub a few weeks sooner than you would expect for a Butterfly Bush. Although the best blooming power is in its initial bloom, this beauty will bloom on shorter secondary panicles well into early fall

Description

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)
