One of my favorite plants that I like to talk about is called the butterfly bush and as you can see here by this brilliant color purple that the butterflies just love this. By simple the color they love like bright reds, bright purples and last September I remember looking at this one time and there where four different types of butterflies on it. So they really enjoy the bush, they enjoy the color, there are several kind of butterfly bushes there are brilliant pink one's, soft pink one's, so what ever your color scheme might be you can decide which color works the best for you. This one happens to grow to about 6 feet tall and it does fit in nicely in a edging type of garden plant. Other things can go in front of it and the butterflies do manage to find it wherever you put it so this is one of those very easy to grow must have in your garden.
