If you’re looking for a thriller with a long-lasting bloom, the Miss Violet Butterfly Bush could be the perfect choice! Affectionately known as “Miss Violet”, these bushes are drought-tolerant and have quite the aromatic presence. In addition to bringing vibrant color to any landscape design, the Miss Violet is known to attract other visitors such as hummingbirds, butterflies, and bees.
Topping out between 4’-5’ in height, the Miss Violet is typically equal in girth, spreading to 4’-5’. These bushes have an extended bloom period, which ranges from summer through the fall. Expect to see deep purple flowers to go alongside muted green foliage. The bush is also deciduous, which means the Miss Violet’s leaves will fall off every fall and come back in the spring. Accompanying the bush’s brilliant color is the fragrance, which adds an additional layer of depth to the landscape plan. For best use, utilize this bush as a thriller in a container or as a border plant.
Miss Violet Butterfly Bush Care
Winter-hardy and summer-tolerant, the Miss Violet can be grown in a variety of climate zones. As long as these bushes are planted in full sun and given an adequate amount of water, they’re able to thrive in most soil conditions. However, for optimal growth, hotter areas are ideal. In extreme heat, be sure to increase the watering schedule, as drought-resistant doesn’t equate to being drought-proof.
Miss Violet Butterfly Bush Spacing
Allow 4’-5’ in between each Miss Violet bush. Planting these bushes too closely together can create significant growth issues.
Interesting Fact - This plant is sometimes called "summer lilac" instead of a "butterfly bush."
