The Q&A Archives: Butterfly bush

Question: I need a butterfly bush that will take some shade..and provide some privacy from neighbors

Answer: Gayfeather (Liatrus spicata 'Kobold') Liatrus has unique flower spikes that provide a strong vertical accent in the butterfly garden. 'Kobold' grows just over 2' tall and has soft purple flowers each summer that butterflies love. In addition to being a great butterfly garden plant, liatrus makes an excellent cut flower plant. Liatrus does well in full sun or part shade and looks best when it is planted in a mass of flowers.
