Anyone enjoy then newer varieties of Smaller butterfly bushes?
I have purchased Miss Molly 2 years ago and she did well in our heat
and humidity...
I purchased Miss Ruby and it lived throughout this summer but
I noticed it had yellow leaves and a branch dying yesterday.
I had thought of spider mites and over watering..but just not sure
since Miss Ruby died last year..another one in the same area..

I liked these as they grow here about 4 and half foot tall and wide..
and have beautiful blooms on Miss Molly and Miss Ruby also.

Any one in the hot and humid south found one that does well
and lives for several years?

Your experience in either of these in a southern humid state..
Mine bloomed well in 5 hours of sun late afternoon sun ...on them..
