Grow a piece of horticultural history! 'Royal Red' butterfly bush was developed in Ohio in 1942, and has since become beloved the world over. It's especially popular in the UK, making it an ideal addition to cottage and English-style flower gardens. It is still considered one of the very best reds on the market, and has won several prestigious awards abroad and here in North America. Look for big, pink-red flower spikes all summer long; 'Royal Red' blooms best and longest if deadheaded, though this isn't strictly necessary.

Note: this variety is sometimes sold as 'Burgundy', though 'Royal Red' is the correct name.
