Silver Fountain Butterflybush

If you like fragrant flowers, the silver fountain butterflybush may be for you - its slender \"weeping\" branches bear dense clusters of sweet-smelling blooms in summer. Prune the shrub after flowering to prevent branches from becoming tangled. Planted in full or partial sun and well-drained or moist soil, the butterflybush can grow to 12 feet tall and 12 feet wide.
