Bring Life to Your Garden with Butterfly Bushes

Bring Life to Your Garden with Butterfly Bushes

By Published July 14, 2018 Updated June 14, 2022

Butterflies are among the most beautiful creatures in nature. Each year they grace gardens with their beauty. If you would like to ensure that your garden is visited by butterflies each year, butterfly bushes are an excellent choice of perennials to plant. Butterfly bushes are woody perennials that return each year provided they are cared for properly. Buddleias feature colorful flowers along with a pleasant aroma that draws in butterflies and provides them with a source for nectar. If you would like to add butterfly bushes to your perennial garden, Plant Delights Nursery, Inc. offers an abundant selection of great performers.

We trial a large number of different butterfly bushes in our gardens and you can see them in person during our Open House Days. Keep in mind that your butterfly bush will need to be planted in full sunlight. Unlike shade plants, these bushes thrive on direct sunlight. If you have shaded areas that need plants, we offer a wide selection of hostas and other plants that will thrive in partial sun. We offer a number of different varieties of butterfly bushes including the Honeycomb Butterfly Bush and the Buddleia Blue Chip which gives you flower panicles that grow in from mid-June until the first frost.

We also offer the Miss Molly Butterfly Bush which is a new hybrid and gives you beautiful red flowers that attract hummingbirds as well as butterflies. We offer a wide range of butterfly plants that will enable you to create a colorful garden to draw in an abundance of wildlife. All of our perennials are excellent performers and we can help you to select the specific plants that will grow well in your hardiness zone. We offer information and tips on our website that will help you to care for your perennial garden and ensure that it greets you every year with beautiful colors and textures.

You can purchase any of our perennials on our website, by mail order or by visiting us in person during our Open House Days. We offer a wide range of native plants as well as rarer tropical plants that will make your garden unique. Feel free to visit our website and learn more about the variety of plants that we cultivate or contact us directly at Plant Delights Nursery, Inc. for help in choosing the right perennials for your garden area.
