The Q&A Archives: butterfly bush

Question: I have an established Butterfly bush. However, we had a couple days that the temperature dropped below freezing after the bush had already begun to start greening up. Now, it looks as if it is dead. All the leaves are now withered and brown. Will it come back, or is there something I need to do to it.

Answer: At this time, there's nothing you need to do. Your butterfly bush will recover and begin growing again. When it does you can prune off anything that looks dead to make room for healthy new growth. Let's hope that's the end of the late season frosts!
