Lo & Behold 
Dwarf Butterfly Bush
Buddleia x 'Blue Chip' P.P.
Butterfly bushes have been a bit hard to come by as of late. The state of Oregon put a ban on them due to their rampant spreading in the western side of the state. We tried to have the ban lifted for Malheur County since we don't have a problem with them spreading- with no luck yet. There are a few sterile varieties available to us that are just as beautiful though! This is a nice one because of its compact size: 24" tall and 30" wide. It is perfect as an accent in a flower bed or in a pot! Its dark purple blooms begin mid-summer and keep going through mid-fall.
