(36-48" tall x 30-36" wide) Buzz® 'Midnight' Butterfly Bush showers the garden in deep purple-with 6-8-inch lance-shaped tapered flowers. Blooming from early summer to late fall, 'Midnight' will create a colorful backdrop to summer’s flowers. This compact shrub with grey-green foliage grows to 3-4 feet tall and is a good fit for a small garden, container, or any setting where it can shine. The sweet honey-scented flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Just deadhead spent blooms to keep more flowers coming. Plant them in groups or as a hedge where they can showcase a cutting garden or edge a path. Plant 'Midnight' in compost-enriched soil with good drainage in a sunny location (some shade is okay). Water well to establish, it likes moderately moist soil, but once established it is quite drought tolerant. In mid-spring, cut stems back to 3 inches tall to stimulate new growth and even more flowers. Deer and rabbit resistant, this butterfly magnet will keep you in bouquet-worthy blossoms almost all season long. Hardy in zones 5-9.
