Fresh Butterfly Bush Varieties From Proven Winners

Proven Winners® has come out with a lovely series! This “MISS” series grows a medium height, just 4-5 feet tall and has a refined, elegant growth habit with intense colors.  It makes a perfect accent for that sunny spot in your garden or yard. ‘Miss Molly’ is as close to red as you will find in a butterfly bush and ‘Miss Pearl’ has a white so bright you can see it at night!
These beautiful varieties bloom profusely through the summer.  They attract butterflies, of course, and also bees and hummingbirds.  They are seedless so they are non-invasive, heat tolerant, and deer resistant.  AND they are fragrant!  With very little maintenance, ‘Miss Molly’, ‘Miss Violet’, ‘Miss Pearl’, and ‘Miss Ruby’ will bloom every year! Make sure to plant butterfly bush in well drained soil with at least 6 hours of full sun each day.  Don’t forget the Espoma Bio-Tone Starter Plus to reduce transplant shock and give roots ample nutrients for best growth.  Prune butterfly bush only after new growth has begun to emerge in spring. It may take several weeks to appear, so be patient and resist the urge to prune sooner.

Miss Pearl – crisp, clean, pure white flowers of ‘Miss Pearl’ buddleia are the perfect accent for any landscape, from a cottage garden to more formal plantings. The newest member of the perfectly-sized “Miss” series, it offers a new color of these non-invasive butterfly bushes. ‘Miss Pearl’ blooms for months and will never be without dozens of honey-scented flowers in the summer time.
