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
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours
Height x width: 2.5' tall and wide
Flower color: Pink
Foliage color: Green
Season of interest: Summer-fall
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: 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.

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

Plants were almost dead when I got them

I’m consistently disappointed with “Great Garden Plants.” While they have varieties that can be hard to find elsewhere, by the time the specimens arrive at my home in Los Angeles, they are usually in pretty terrible shape compared with other growers I’ve ordered from who get plants to me looking better than if I bought them at a nursery. As such, I will probably steer clear of ordering from GGP again.

Plant arrived in a timely fashion, was in excellent shape, and I was notified when it had been shipped, that it was due to arrive on a certain day, and that it had actually arrived on my doorstep. Fantastic service and I would certainly use you again.
