South Bohemia, Czech Republic
Have just sadly turned my lovely Buddleia into firewood since it did not survive the -30 winter. Am not entirely unhappy about it because I foolishly planted it in a walled raised bed and have since discovered that the roots would eventually have damaged the walls. However I shall desperately miss my butterflies which flocked to it in the summer.
Any suggestions for a bush that could replace it, perhaps something not so rambunctious as a buddleia but that is truly frost hardy (though the winter was exceptionally long this year apparently) and which attracts butterflies?
