Finally a butterfly bush easy to live with in the garden, yet a variety still awesome in its performance. The "Blue Chip" Dwarf Butterfly will still pack in the butterflies each day at its blue-purple blossoms, yet stay small enough to be a consideration in most garden applications, easily maintained around 3 feet tall without any clipping. The color and the excitement in the yard lasts from mid summer to mid fall making a butterfly bush a perfect pairing with a spring blooming specimen, thus extending color throughout the season. Plant in full sun in average soil and keep soil consistently moist. Hardy to USDA zone 5 and all higher zones. The "Blue Chip Butterfly Bush" is also noticed by hummingbirds yet resists deer....a winning combination. Shipped potted in soil for best possible results when planted in yard or garden.
