|Butterfly Bush, Buddleia davidii, will grow in Illinois. It dies down to the ground each winter but sprouts again in the late spring. Butterfly bushes should be readily available in your local garden center. They are hardy plants and quite popular. You might want to phone your local garden centers to make sure they have the plant before you make a trip!
