Garden Talk
Listen to why this is Niles' favorite.
  • Blooms from midsummer to fall
  • Attracts butterflies and hummingbirds
  • Good for cut-flower arrangements
  • Grows 8-10 ft. tall
  • Deer tend to pass it by
Striking dark purple-blue panicles bloom in the heat of summer when most plants are done flowering, filling your garden with captivating color. This carefree plant is also excellent for cut-flower arrangements! This hardy bush stands 8-10 ft. tall when mature, has a wonderful honey-sweet aroma and attracts lots of hummingbirds and butterflies. Hardy and deer resistant, Black Knight Butterfly Bush performs best in full sun to partial shade, and dryer soils. Zones 5-9.
