More Information

Description Butterfly bush (Buddleia) keeps getting better and better with Lo and Behold® 'Blue Chip Jr'. This updated selection is more compact, requires little maintenance, and provides four months of continuous blooms!  Blue spiked flowers rise above silver-hued foliage in early summer and continue to bloom until fall. The colorful and fragrant blooms are a beacon for butterflies. Growing only 18-30" with a tailored mounding habit, this flowering shrub can easily fit in smaller spaces. It is tough and vigorous, effortlessly enduring sun, drought, heat, humidity, and deer. It grows well in containers or as a border, but we suggest planting it in masses for dramatic effect! Details Botanical name: Buddleia 'Blue Chip
Patent #: USPP 19,991
Common name: Butterfly bush
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 1.5-2.5' tall and wide
Flower color: Blue
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer
Uses: Accent, Border, Container gardening, Cottage gardening, Massing, Small spaces, Pollinator gardens.
How To Grow Soil: Butterfly bushes require very well-drained, even dry, soils. Do not amend or add anything to the soil at planting time, as this can cause serious drainage problems. In clay soil, plant butterfly bush so they are slightly above the soil.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun).
Water: Low to average watering; soil can even be dry once established. Butterfly bush does not tolerate wet conditions for any period.
Spacing: 1.5 - 3 feet
Fertilizing: Little needed; if desired, apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: In fall, plants can be trimmed lightly, but save major pruning for spring. Do not fertilize in fall, and if mulching, do not apply heavily at the base of the plant.
Maintenance & pruning: Butterfly bushes are best pruned in spring, once the new growth has emerged. At that point, cut just above where big, healthy buds appear. Give butterfly bushes plenty of time to emerge in spring, especially in colder climates - this may take several weeks, even if other plants in your yard are already leafing out.

Thriving

The transit was not kind to them as they were delivered in a not so ideal condition. Knowing how great GGP plants are I wasn’t worried at all. Planted them and they are booming. Never judge a plant upon delivery.

Bloomed great first year - dead the second

Out of 23 plants, which all bloomed beautifully (and grew fast) the first season, this second season has me very disappointed. Only 5 plants have come back. I followed the spring pruning directions to a tee and we live in a mild climate (zone 8) so these should not have had any issues with our mild winters.

Hi Marianne, Thank you for leaving us feedback. It is not uncommon for Butterfly Bush to 'wake up' later than other plants in your garden. We know it can be hard to be patient in the spring, but with a few extra weeks you should see some new growth! Do you see any buds? Alive stems are firm, yet pliable. If you cut or scrape them, they will have a green cast inside. If the stems are dry and brittle they are likely dead. However, a few dead branches does not mean the plant is completely dead. You can read more about Butterfly Bush at the link below. Happy Gardening!
