Rainbow Butterfly Bush

Puts on a Striking Color Display in Late Summer

Garden Talk
Listen to why this is Niles' favorite.
Splendid sweet-scented panicles are filled with tiny star-shaped flowers in a colorful mix of lavender, orange and butterscotch-yellow–a spectacular sight when it blooms in late summer to fall! The blooms are perfect for cut-flower arrangements and will bring loads of hummingbirds and butterflies to your garden. This virtually carefree, deer-resistant shrub stands 6-8 ft. tall when mature and performs best in sunny sites with humus-enriched, well-drained soil. Zones 5-9.
