Butterflies Swarm In Valley Cottage

Butterflies Swarm In Valley Cottage

Image title

My Butterfly Bushes have finally bloomed in my Valley cottage backyard. The deep purple fox tail flowers are beautiful by themselves, but the countless butterflies they attract are the real stars of the show. Buddleja Davidi, also known as summer lilac, is an Asian plant used for ornamental purposes. It has high nectar content in its colorful flowers hence the butterfly attraction. It is classified as an invasive species and has caused problems in Great Britain, New Zealand, and our own Pacific Northwest. There are some 180 varieties though the purple and white dwarf hybrids are most common in local nurseries.

They need to be cut way back each fall or they will not survive the winter. Butterfly bushes are inexpensive, easy to grow, come back year after year, and will bring you more butterflies then you ever knew existed. Plant a few next spring and enjoy the rainbow of nature’s colors.
