Looking for a colorful new perennial for your garden! Butterfly Bush or Buddleia as they are called are profuse bloomers with gray-green to dark green leaves and fragrant 6″ – 8″ long flower heads that butterflies find very attractive.
Japanese Beetles can ravage the foliage and flowers of your favorite plants and July is when they start to munch.

Even our plants need to eat; feed them well. A combination of a dry granular feeding supplemented by a water soluable fertilizer every 14 days in warm weather give the kick in the “plants” they need!
