Butterly Fly Bush


By Cynthia

What is happening to my butterly fly bush? Last year I bought a new butterly fly bush to replace the one planted the previous year. Each year the bush does not come back, any idea why?



Cynthia, what is a Butterfly bush please?

Is it a Buddliea? Maybe in the States a Butterfly Bush is something else?

Yes I'm referring to a 'Buddleia" in regards to the question about my 'Butterly Bush'. thanks!

Do you prune it too hard? Established ones like this treatment, but new ones may not.

What sort of conditions is it growing in? Waterlogging or excessive dryness? Buddleias are pretty tough things - you see them growing out of peoples chimney pots here!
