When To Plant Butterfly Bushes

Question From: J. Rump - PENNSYLVANIA
Q: When do you plant butterfly bushes in Pennsylvania, USA? I want to plant them as a memorial to my Daughter, please help


Jeannie, It's best to plant them after the frost free date in your area, so the leaves will not be damaged by frost. Check with you local independent garden center for the date. I am so sorry for your loss. Keep your butterfly bush dead headed, that is removing spent bloom clusters and it will flower all season. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
