    Giant Fragrant Blooms Attract Wildlife

    • showy purple flowers last from June to September
    • huge blooms are magnets to butterflies and hummingbirds
    • so fragrant, they're popular as cut flower arrangements
    • the hardiest butterfly bush- all the way to zone 5!

    The Best Plant for Attracting Wildlife
    The Black Knight Butterfly Bush is the most fragrant butterfly bush you can find. It attracts more butterflies and hummingbirds than any other plant. You'll get unique, dark purple blooms up to twelve inches long! They're long-lasting, too- from spring until late fall.

    Looks Great Anywhere
    You often see these plants as focal points in gardens because of their showy, fragrant blooms. However, you can also plant them in rows for a scented hedge.

    Very Easy to Grow
    This plant is very low-maintenance, too. It doesn't have any pest or disease problems- all you have to do is sit back and watch the wildlife show.

    Fragrant Scent Fills Up Your Yard
    The purple blooms have a rich and sweet scent (almost like honey), so place your Black Knight in a spot where you are guaranteed to enjoy the bold fragrance. We suggest planting near patios, walkways or entryways.

    Plenty of Landscape Uses
    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.

    For instant blooms and fragrance, order 3 gallon butterfly bushes if they're still available. Homeowners want instant flowers and butterflies, so the large sizes always sell out quick. You'll get huge blooms the first flowering season!

    Arrived wilted from travel, but we're hoping that it makes a full recovery now that it is in the ground.

    Good so far! I hope to see big purple blooms come spring time. Planted as instructed.

    First one I received was completely barren. Looked dead. I let them know and received a slightly better one. Don't expect a beautiful plant to arrive, these arrive sickly and need to be babied. I'm still trying to bring it back. Next time I'll go to a local nursery and start with a healthy plant.

    Too soon to see final outcome. They were a bit shocked from the boxes. Looks like they will do great.

    Beautiful. Great shipping you can track and what to do once you receive your plant

    The plant arrived in such a horrible condition - I couldn't give the plant as I gift, as I had planned. I'm not entirely sure it will live.

    Doing well. Just planted them 3 days ago.

    Not packaged well for shipping. Loose in box with another plant. Damage to both plants. Hope it survives

    Anxiously awaiting some growth! I recommend getting the larger plant so it is more hardy.

    I received an email offering 50% off butterfly bushes, so I tried it. Instead of paying $100, I ordered one for the sale price of $50. It arrived, well packaged, moist soil, prompt delivery, but very sad looking, very small, scraggly looking plant with dead blooms. Even if it had looked full and healthy, which it did not, I would expect a would-be $100 bush to be a decent size. But $100 or even $50 for a very small, scraggly bush is not an acceptable product. I took photos and sent them to the company, explaining the situation and requested a refund. The response was that it is supposed to look like that when it arrives, just wait, plaint it, water it, watch it... But they missed the point that for $100 or $50 the customer should not be receiving a tiny plant, let alone a sickly one. I could have and will now go to a nursery in person and spend much less on a bigger, healthier bush. Very disappointed with product and customer service... Won't purchase from Not-so-Brighter-Blooms again...

    I purchased the same plant at a local nursery for the same price as the one from brighter blooms local plant was in great shape many blooms, stock from brighter blooms was in bad shape no blooms to speak of I will be lucky if it makes it. It looks like a dead plant.
