A compact Butterfly Bush that blooms continually through out the summer.
Soil & Site
about 0 degrees F, grown has a perennial in the cooler zones
blue/purple, blooms on new wood
up to 24-20 inches, spreading 30-40 inches, mounded growth habit
Since it blooms on new wood the die back in the cooler climates may keep the size down but still lots of blossoms should occur. If it looks dead in the spring, wait till the weather warms up before you compost it, it may sprout back to life.

I planted this in my yard summer of 2011. I knew I had to have one when they came into the garden center I work at. Lets hope it is a bit hardier than the other varieties for zone #5. (it lasted only 2 years as of summer 2014)
