Imagine all the benefits of a butterfly bush packed into a dwarf plant with white flowers. That's Lo and Behold Ice Chip Butterfly Bush (Buddleia). And those benefits are numerous — it is drought tolerant, heat tolerant, resistant to deer and rabbits, but irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds. Each summer, pretty cone-shaped blossoms appear in graceful white above the creamy green leaves. This is one of the most versatile and rewarding plants you can place in your landscape or a container.

Here's another benefit of Behold Ice Chip Butterfly Bush: it is not invasive like some varieties, so you can grow this dwarf buddleia in any state in zones 5 through 9. Because it grows only 1.5 to 2 feet tall and 2.5 feet wide, this dwarf butterfly bush makes a pretty groundcover in a sunny area of the landscape. Plant several together for a white carpet on which pollinators can land. The blooms appear in summer and continue to appear through early fall.

Lo and Behold Ice Chip Butterfly Bush Care

Like all buddleias, Behold Ice Chip Butterfly Bush needs a little extra water for its first year. After that, it should thrive on rainwater only. Just be sure to plant your butterfly bush in a container or soil that drains well. It will bloom continuously through summer with no deadheading. Prune your shrub back in early spring just above new green leaves that emerge after winter. It's that simple to grow!

Lo and Behold Ice Chip Butterfly Bush Spacing

Sometimes called "Summer Lilac," Behold Ice Chip Butterfly Bush is not a lilac at all, and instead boasts the drought tolerance of the buddleias. If planting a group of these buddleias as a border or groundcover, space them 2 to 3 feet apart.

Interesting Fact(s) - This plant is sometimes called "summer lilac" instead of a "butterfly bush."

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
