The Q&A Archives: butterfly bushes

Question: We live in Illinois, when is the best time to trim back our butterfly bushes?

Answer: Butterfly bushes can be slow to wake up in the spring but you can still cut them back now or after they leaf out. Either way they will grow new stems and foliage when the weather warms. Enjoy your garden!
