Butterfly Bush

We had a lovely little butterfly bush in a pot on our deck. Every year it would share one or two blossoms on its branches. Vibrant purple and oh so fragrant.

Two years later, we have a butterfly tree with dozens and dozens of flowers.

The struggling little shrub in the pot simply needed the right environment in order to thrive. What are the elements that would help you thrive?
