Special Attributes

'Miss Molly' has some of the reddest flowers we've seen on any Butterfly Bush. Its fragrant and eye-catching, intensely magenta to purple red flower spikes are produced in abundance over a long flowering period from early to summer to mid-fall in our north-central Georgia gardens. The sweetly scented and colorful flowers contrast nicely with the silvery-green foliage and draw both butterflies and hummingbirds like a magnet. We wouldn't call Miss Molly a dwarf but she grows about half the size of older, full-size butterfly bushes; only 4-5 feet tall and wide at maturity. Her smaller size lends well to small and medium size gardens and medium size containers of 14 inches or more in diameter. you'll be happy to know that Miss Molly is a non-invasive variety that thrives in the heat!



Landscape & Garden Uses

With a refined habit, growing in a rounded mound to only 4 to 5 feet tall and wide. Miss Molly Butterfly Bush is well-suited for use in the ornamental landscape. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it for use as an accent or in groupings in home foundation plants, or as a specimen, grouped, or as natural hedge in landscape and flowering shrub borders and perennial gardens. Its smaller size lends well for use in large pots, planters and other containers of 15 inches or more in diameter. A welcome and colorful addition to butterfly and hummingbird gardens, and red-themed color gardens. 

Suggested Spacing:  3.5 to 4' for solid hedges or mass plantings;  8' or more for space between plants



Cultural Preferences

Miss Molly Butterfly Bush is exceptionally easy to grow in moist but well-drained soils of average to low fertility and full sun to mostly sun. We suggest at least 6 hours of direct sun per day during the growing season best flowering. As with so many other plants, constantly soggy or wet soils can be problematic. Deadheading of spent flowers isn't absolutely necessary however will encourage production of new and more flowers.
