The Q&A Archives: Butterfly Bushes

Question: I planted 2 butterfly bushes last spring in my flower garden. Not knownig how fast they would grow, I need to transplant then. Can I do that now or wait till spring?

Answer: Now is a great time to dig and move your butterfly bushes. You can prune them back to make them easier to handle. It seems that the more you prune butterfly bushes, the more vigorously they grow so don't be afraid to cut them back when they get out of bounds. Best wishes with the move!
