That’s a pretty photo! What variety of butterfly bush grows well there? The only one I could find that sometimes survives our winters is Black Knight.

Same here Katy, they are all zone 5 I think if they say 4 they're always fibbing! I've had luck with black knight for several years but I'm not sure what this one is called but it was marked zone 5, I think here the only thing that determines survival is if u get it in the right spot, this ones down in a dip, and is sheltered by wind on all sides and then gets buried in maple leaves when they fall so that's why I've had 3 years "luck" with this one 💗 @gjones

So it sounds like I'd need to put them in a very well protected area and mulch heavily in the fall. Does yours start from the root each year? How far do you cut yours back?

No cutting back till a very late spring as it's like hibiscus and very late to sprout back, dies back usually always to the ground or a little above @gjones

Oh how we all long for the warmth of summer! Tina, you probably got a part of that weather system that hit Manitoba. We escaped that one - just chilly and windy here. Next week it's forecast to be back to normal temps (50F/10C)😊

That is indeed a beautiful pic. It’s still in the 80s here and I’m wishing for cloud cover so I can work in my garden. Lol, it’s always something.
