The Q&A Archives: no flowers

Question: i planted my butterfly bush last yr- thi syr i am waiting for the flowers but have had none yet
i have fertilzed and nt cut it it looks healthy
what cld br the problem?

Answer: Butterfly bushes usually take some time to recover from their winter dieback and being cut down in the spring. As long as it is in full sun or at least a half day of direct sun, has been fertilized and is growing well, there is nothing to be done except wait as patiently as you can. (Do not prune it in the summer, it blooms on new growth.)
