Lo & Behold™ ‘Blue Chip’ butterfly bush is a lazy gardener’s dream. If you grow butterfly bush, you know it can be labor intensive. In order to keep old-time butterfly bushes looking neat and blossoming, you need to remove spent flower heads. This new little hybrid butterfly bush, called ‘Blue Chip’, is an exception to the deadheading rule. It will clean itself and keep on throwing out new little blue flower heads. We call it little, because this dwarf buddleia grows just 2-3 feet tall. It is perennial in USDA Zones 5-9. Once established in the landscape, it will only need supplemental watering in very dry weather. In containers, which tend to dry out quickly, you will need to give it more water but not more attention.
