Just WOW!!! Fantastic!!
Thank you all for your lovely comments. It's so amazing to see these butterfies gathered in one bush!
I have planted seeds for a orange butterfly bush but to no success. It has not sprouted at all and no signs of any popping up. I wonder why.They have been planted for months now.. ;>(
This is beautiful,just look at those butterflies,I have 1 large butterfly bush and 6 Dwarf butterfly bushes a mix of different colors and can't wait for them to begin to bloom. They are doing quite well except 2 of the dwarf they are still quite small I need some kind of fertilizer for them ,does anyone have a good tip for my BF bushes?
How wonderful is that? I gotta get me one (or two or three).
I have several Buddleia "Butterfly Bush" in my Arizona shade garden. Black Knight and White profusion are my favorites. I grew them in Tehachapi, CA and when I moved to AZ I had to have them here. I am not a desert gardener and have struggled with the intense heat and growing the lovely flowering shrubs I was familiar with in California. I have tried Rock Roses (Cistus) and Sun Roses (Helianthemum) and have struggled until I found the perfect spot...south facing wall under my queen palms. They get a touch of early morning sun and shade all afternoon...with very little late afternoon/evening sun. I see butterflies and hummingbirds flittering all around the entrance to my home. Pure bliss...
Beautiful and fun to see all of the butterflies enjoying the bush!
Awww YEP the butterflies look like the "real" flowers ;) how great is that?!
It lives up to it's name for sure! Beautiful!
