A striking plant that is suitable for landscaping is the peacock butterfly bush. It does well in full sunlight and is fairly drought resistant. It comes with large flowers that come in a variety of vivid colors and patterns, including pink, red, yellow and white. Some varieties are even available in blue and purple.
One way that you can combine this plant with other landscape plants is by growing them in your perennial flower garden. Peacock butterfly bush, as the name suggests, grows well in full sunlight. And it really looks good when planted in pots. It is easy to grow up to twelve inches high. They flower in the spring and in the summer they produce small berries that you can eat. There is even a freeze resistant pink hybrid known as the peanut butter pink.
You can of course just buy your butterfly bush buddleia Davidii seeds and plant them yourself. But if you like to do things on your own, then why not try growing these beautiful plants in your own garden? In this article I will talk about planting Butterfly Bush and peacock butterfly bushes in your landscape.
The best way to plant butterfly garden is to use short flowers such as marigolds, tulips, freesias and columbines. You can mix these with taller blooms such as passion fruit and honeysuckle for a different look to your yard. These flowers also come in a variety of colors such as yellow, red, orange, pink and white. If you would prefer taller plants such as passion fruit and honeysuckle then you need to add taller plants such as dwarf butterfly bushes and pansies. You could mix these flowers up in a different color scheme and mix up the landscape completely.
Another way to landscape with butterfly bushes and butterfly garden is by using different types of grasses. For instance, if you have tall grasses such as rye, bluegrass, fescue and perennial ryegrass then you can make your landscape come together by planting some of the shorter grasses at the same time. So, instead of planting some tall bluestone borders around your butterfly garden you can plant some of the shorter grasses around the perimeter. If you have a beautiful meadow or pond area where you can sit and watch butterflies takeectar from a flower then you can use this area to landscape with butterfly bushes and other plants.
Some great ideas that you can incorporate into your butterfly bush landscaping are planting roses between the trees and then planting blue chip and black-eyed susans along the sides. These flower bushes do very well in shaded areas so remember to choose the type of plant that does not need much attention from you. The other plant to consider for the garden is the blue chip or red cardinal flower. The blue chip is an evergreen shrub which blooms in the spring with red and purple flowers.
If you are looking for a great landscape to compliment a butterfly bush garden then you have to give the blue chip or red cardinal a shot. This is one plant that you can never get enough of. These beautiful shrubs will add color to any yard but they also come with very strong flowers. When you landscape with buddleia miss Molly you will be adding something special to your property.
