'Lochinch' Butterfly Bush

With its arching stems, soft gray-green leaves and talent for attracting butterflies, the 'Lochinch' is an elegant addition to any garden. In late summer, it bears long, tapering plumes of violet-blue flowers with orange eyes; deadhead regularly to promote further flowering. Plant the 'Lochinch' butterfly bush in full sun and well-drained soil, and watch it grow to 8 feet tall and 10 feet wide.
