Butterfly bush!

It was smaller than I expected. I expect it will grow quickly. No blooms on it, so I can’t give an accurate review. I think it will thrive like my previous order.

Plant health and size

Excellent in both categories.
Excellent packing as well.
Looking forward to more plants of this caliber!

arrived healthy

The Black Knight Butterfly Bush was pretty small - I guess I was hoping for a larger plant, as it's miniscule compared to its partner.
However, considering that I could not get ANY Black Knight where I live, or even 200 miles away, I was very excited to even get this little guy.
It was completely green, very healthy, and the soil in the pot was still moist!
Here in zone 5, I mulch heavily in the winter - a foot deep covering in leaves and evergreen boughs, so mine usually make it. This winter had many freeze/thaw cycles, so one of them did not.
Thank you for your selection - I was very happy to be able to purchase a Black Knight. It will catch up.
