Black Knight Butterfly Bush
Fragrant Blooms Attract All Sorts of Wildlife
The Black Knight Butterfly Bush is a fragrant flowering shrub that is incredibly easy to grow!
Slender green velvety leaves that are up to 10 inches long provide a gorgeous backdrop for delicate, deep violet flowers.
The Black Knight Butterfly Bush grows upright with its stems cascading gently from the center once itís heavily laden with flowers.
From mid summer to the first frost, your Black Knight Butterfly Bush will continue to draw ooh's and ah's with its unique display of colorful spearheads that shoot out from the foliage. Hummingbirds and butterflies will come from miles around to sample the honey-scented blossoms' sweet nectar.
The purple blooms have a rich and sweet scent, so place Black Knight in a spot where you are guaranteed to enjoy the bold fragrance. We suggest near patios, walkways or entryways.
Donít be fooled by its beauty though, as this shrub is tough as nails. Hardy in growing zones 5-9, the Black Knight is frost tolerant, deer and pest resistant, adaptable to most soil types and even thrives in an urban setting.
The Black Knight Butterfly Bush can be used to camouflage a bare wall or fence and makes a lovely backdrop for companion perennials. When you want to bring some of the garden grandeur indoors, blooming stalks from the Black Knight make a dramatic cut flower arrangement.
