I love your butterfly bush too! Every one I've planted down here has died fairly fast. I still have butterflies though; just a few days ago I walked out in the morning and saw a newly emerged Zebra Heliconian male hanging about two feet away from two female chrysalides, both covered in male butterflies waiting for the girls to emerge. It was absolutely stunning. I think you need to move way south for December butterflies, but I do envy your butterfly bush.
