Your butterfly bush collection needs Lo & Behold® 'Blue Chip Jr.'! This special selection blooms earlier than any other plant in the Lo & Behold series, extending the season by up to two weeks each summer. Foliage has appealing silvery tones for better drought tolerance and better looks. We also like that it's a bit smaller and less brittle than other butterfly bushes, making it perfect for landscaping near pools, patios, anywhere you can enjoy its non-stop display of blue flowers in the summer. This Proven Winners butterfly bush is another fantastic innovation from Dr. Dennis Werner of NCSU and is non-invasive and approved for sale in Oregon and Washington.
