MY BUTTERFLY BUSH



flowerdisco's butterfly bush
the butterflies weren't around when i took these pics---i really wanted to get a pic of at least one.
maybe next time i get luckier and have my camera with me.

in these pictures you can see--- 1- the flowers, ---2- how big it is right now, ---3- the flowers do not last long but they are always more blooming, ---4- new bloom, ---5- dried bloom, ---6- baby bloom and ---
7- the base (trunk).

i  prune it in early spring and i do cut it down pretty much. you can see the shooters by the base---where the tiny leaves are, but i am always cutting them off to keep the branches high.

enjoy!

  1. Thanks, for the pics! I told the hubby about these! I'm going to have him come take a look at the pics. The blooms are soooo pretty!

    I think he'll like those in our yard; if not this year, next year. I'll love the butterflies!!!

    Hugs, sweetie!
