The transit was not kind to them as they were delivered in a not so ideal condition. Knowing how great GGP plants are I wasn’t worried at all. Planted them and they are booming. Never judge a plant upon delivery.

Bloomed great first year - dead the second

Out of 23 plants, which all bloomed beautifully (and grew fast) the first season, this second season has me very disappointed. Only 5 plants have come back. I followed the spring pruning directions to a tee and we live in a mild climate (zone 8) so these should not have had any issues with our mild winters.

Hi Marianne, Thank you for leaving us feedback. It is not uncommon for Butterfly Bush to 'wake up' later than other plants in your garden. We know it can be hard to be patient in the spring, but with a few extra weeks you should see some new growth! Do you see any buds? Alive stems are firm, yet pliable. If you cut or scrape them, they will have a green cast inside. If the stems are dry and brittle they are likely dead. However, a few dead branches does not mean the plant is completely dead.
