Photo Of The Day: Butterfly Bush

Butterfly Plant

I had never seen these bushes until I moved to North Carolina a decade ago.  Its quite obvious where they get their name from.   The blooms give off a fruity smell that is irresistible to Butterflies and Humming Birds.  In warmer year round temperatures, these will grow into trees.  Thanks for the Look and Have a Great Evening.

  1. Wonderful shot! The blue is electrifying!
    This is a case where common names make plant ID complicated. I don’t recognize this plant, so it’s probably out of my range, but up here we call things in the buddleia family a butterfly bush . 🙂
