How to Plant BUTTERFLY BUSH Seeds
Sow seed in cell packs or
flats, press into soil but not
cover. Needs light to germinate. Kept at 70-80° F., germination is
spread out over a period of 1-5
weeks. Transfer into 3 inch pots as soon as seedlings are large enough to handle. Once the plants become well rooted, transplant into the
garden 6 feet apart. See Starting Seeds for more information.
Comments: Butterfly Bush plants flower on new growth, cut plants back to 6-12 inches tall in early spring before new growth begins to increase flowering and control size.
