I love my butterfly bush!

When we had the landscaping done 3 1/2 years ago I asked for a pink butterfly bush, that was at the top of my list. I told the landscaper I wanted it planted where I could see it from the living room windows. Since I was battling sciatica at the time I couldn't get outside to 'supervise'. Since all the plants were young and small I couldn't tell one from the other from the window. In the spring when the butterfly bush started leaving out I realized he planted it in front of the guest room window, not where I had told him to plant it. Well, as you can see from the size of it, he probably did me a favor planting it in the wrong place! If it had been where I wanted it (in front of the railing) by now it would have totally blocked my view! Sometimes mistakes aren't really mistakes at all!

that reminds me of a house we looked at years aog lookiiig to rent but it had bushes and vines at every window so instead it was \eerie and sort of scary, musty I said no we do not want this yet my hubby had liked it. If all hat stuff concealing the windows had'been trimmed back they could have rented that house in a flash.

Very true...he did make a lot of other mistakes - like buying two trees that he was to plant, calling and asking for the money for them but that he couldn't plant for a few days and then he never came back - we had to hire another person to plant them.

you have a awesome garden there I would LOVE to have a butterfly bush in mine as where I can see it bush out like yours but I haven't had any luck with one I've bought 3-4 of them & NONE of them have made it as of yet. Your so right it's a GOOD thing it was planted where it is cause they DO get BIG if they aren't trimmed back every so often but I would LOVE to have a bottle brush instead or one NEXT to a butterfly bush if you haven't seen one here you go
