Description

Lo & Behold Purple Haze Butterfly Bush has fragrant dark, purple-blue flowers that radiate like a pinwheel and are larger than the others in the Lo & Behold series. Continuously blooming from June through frost, attracting loads of butterflies and hummingbirds in the process. Adaptable to drier soil conditions but does not tolerate wet locations. To maintain a more tidy appearance, prune in early spring just as the new leaves are breaking dormancy, also removing dead wood caused by winter's harshness. Its unique, horizontal spreading habit makes for an excellent ground cover.
