More Information

Description Lo & Behold Ruby Chip butterfly bush (Buddleia hybrid) packs a LOT of color into a small package! The newest member of Proven Winners' Lo & Behold series combines the fabulously pure, bright colors of the "Miss" series with the tidy, garden-friendly size of the Lo & Behold series. Like the other Proven Winners butterfly bushes, it does not need to be trimmed or deadheaded in order to keep the blooms coming all summer, and it's highly drought tolerant and deer resistant too. Developed by innovative plant breeder Megan Mathey. Details Botanical name:  Buddleia x 'SMNBDD'
Common name: Butterfly bush
Patient: PP 32,399
Zone: 5 - 9

Height x width: 2.5' tall and wide

Bloom time: Summer, early fall
Features: Space savers, rabbit resistant, proven winners, heat tolerant, fragrant, dry soils, drought tolerant, deer resistant, container plants, best for beginners
Uses: Specimen, flower gardens, butterfly and hummingbird 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, rather than even with, the soil.
Light: Full sun - at least six hours of bright sun each day is necessary for healthy plants and abundant blooms.
Water: Low to average watering; soil can even be dry once established. Butterfly bush do not tolerate wet conditions for any period of time.
Spacing: 2.5 - 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 if desired, 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 begun to emerge. 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.

Butterfly bushes

The two dwarf butterfly bushes are cute. Planted them right away and they’re doing great. Now it’s fall so I’ll protect them against frost with a layer of leaves and mulch. Can’t wait until summer and see them grow and bloom.

Perfect.

I purchased in early fall and have potted them in a raised bed buried to the top of the pots for overwintering. They are doing wonderfully and I have no doubt they will be in great shape for their permanent homes this spring.

Arrived on death’s door

We’ll see --plant isn’t dead, but arrived looking awful. I will order from another company next time, as this was not impressive.

QUALITY IS SURPERB

Amazing quality and very well packaged. Ordered and received two each. You can't realize the quality of these two plants unless you have received very poor quality. Ordered five from a dealer on ETSY and they can't compare to these two plants. One was 2 1/2 inches tall which should have been a Pugster Amethyst but has bloomed twice and all white. All five plants had a fungus and required several treatments with a fungicide but now all clear. These two plants have several buds ready to bloom and extremely healthy. Wilted a little from the trip but will improve as I have all four plants that I received in a shaded area. Will order from this company many times. THANKS
