The easy-to-care-for butterfly bush or Buddleia grows well in well-drained soil and full sun. With proper light and soil, the butterfly bush should return year after year to the delight of butterfly-loving gardeners.
Butterfly bushes are named for their ability to attract butterflies to the garden. The lilac-like scent is one of the most notable features of the cone-shaped clump of flowers.
Successful timing of almost any transplanting endeavor in the garden will depend somewhat on your climate. Although the butterfly bush transplants well in the fall in warmer climates, in cooler climates it is best to get your transplanting done in the spring.
The butterfly bush is considered a noxious and invasive weed in England as well as some areas of the United States. Controlling propagation of this species can be a daunting task.
