The Q&A Archives: Petite Butterflies Sweet Pea Shrub, please please please?

Question: I have been poring over all my gardening books, and have spent hours going up and down the walkways of my local nurseries, looking for something special and sweet for my back yard. Now I've stumbled across it in your site - and am very hopeful that one of your retailers in my area may have it. Can you advise if this is the case? If not, how can I go about getting my grubby gardener hands on it? Thanks in advance for your help, Christy Marchand

Answer: Christy,

That plant is fairly well adapted to your area if you can provide good drainage, perhaps with a raised planting bed. Give it plenty of sun. It may be damaged in an unusually cold winter in your area but should be okay most winters.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
