  • Light Required

    Butterfly bush needs full sun (at least six hours daily) and will become weedy and sparse if grown in shady conditions.

  • Watering

    This plant likes a medium-moisture environment and will do poorly at either extreme—intolerant of drought or boggy locations that don't drain well. They will thrive on 1/2 inch of water by rain or irrigation each week.

  • Best Growing Conditions

    Butterfly bush grows well in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in a full sun location. If planting more than one, space them well apart—5 to 6 feet. Blend in peat moss before planting if the soil is dense and poorly draining. In colder climates, butterfly bush often dies back to the ground in winter and is treated like a herbaceous perennial. In warm climates, they can be pruned back in the same way to keep them under control and stimulate better blooming. Be wary of this plant's tendency to aggressively spread through self-seeding. Removing the spent flower clusters before they can scatter seeds will help control the plant.
