What Are The Best Types of Butterfly Bushes?

Planting butterfly bushes is easy! Simply dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Take the butterfly bush out of its nursery pot and loosen up some of the roots. Place the potted bush into the planting hole and backfill with native soil. Water the flowering shrub thoroughly for the first few weeks to establish a strong root system and cover it with mulch or organic matter to help retain moisture.
The best place to plant butterfly bushes is in an area with at least 6-8 hours of direct
sunlight with well-draining soil that is organically rich in nutrients. Butterfly bushes grow best across the United States in USDA grow zones 5-10. Additionally, if you are in a zone that is hotter or colder than the ones prescribed, you can keep your rush bush in a container and move indoors on winter nights when temperatures are below 20 F.
