Maintenance Notes:
Prune butterfly bush only after new growth has begun to emerge in spring. It may take several weeks to appear, so be patient and resist the urge to prune sooner. Plant butterfly bush in full sun and very well-drained soil: wet soil, particularly winter and early spring, may cause root rot. Avoid fall planting in USDA zones 5 and 6.

A touch of elegance for your flower garden!

The crisp, clean, pure white flowers of 'Miss Pearl' buddleia are the perfect accent for any landscape, from a cottage garden to more formal plantings. The newest member of the perfectly-sized "Miss" series, it offers a new color of these non-invasive butterfly bushes. 'Miss Pearl' blooms for months and will never be without dozens of honey-scented flowers in the summer time. Available in better garden centers in 2017.

Cold, wet winters can be really hard on buddleia, so here are a few tips to help your buddleia thrive in your garden:
1. Make sure the soil is well-drained. That place where the plow truck dumps snow in the winter? Not a good idea.
2. Full sun. That's at least 6 hours. No cheating.
3. Plant early in the season. This gives the plants all summer and fall to establish. Fall planting can be chancy in northern regions.
4. Wait until it leafs out in spring before pruning, and cut back to just above where healthy new growth is emerging. Avoid fall pruning.

Fun Facts:
This non-invasive variety is approved for sale in Oregon and Washington, though it will be called a "summer lilac" instead of a "butterfly bush."
