Woolly Butterfly Bush
Woolly Butterfly Bush is an evergreen shrub growing at a moderate rate to 5' high and wide known for attracting butterflies. This dense, rounded shrub is covered with silver, hairy leaves. Orange, marble-sized blossoms occur throughout the year, with the heavist bloom in spring and summer. This Chihuahuan Desert native is very tolerant of heat, cold, intense sun and drought.
Its densely-branched form requires little to no pruning. Prevent complete soil dryness, fertilize 2 to 3 times during the growing season with rose food. Because it is accustomed to a warmer part of Texas, woolly butterfly bush needs protection from freezes.
