Now back to the regularly schedule program :)
We've been in our house almost a year now. A few more weeks will be the anniversary of our move-in date, so my discoveries in the garden are coming to an end. It has been so much fun to watch new things bloom that I didn't know existed...hello weigela! Anyway, after this week, it will be normal garden surprises and I will know basically what will be coming and going through the seasons, but the garden gave me one last thrill this week when this butterfly bush sprung into full bloom.
Now for the fun part...I have lots and lots of seed from this beautiful bush. You need a little space to grow one (each is about 6-9 foot tall and 4-6 foot wide) and be willing to let it grow a little crazy. It will look horrible if you shear it with hedge cutters. This plant has also shown a slight tendency to be invasive along the coasts. If you would like to try giving buddleia a try, just email me your address and I'll send you some seed!!
