whyHello; I noticed my butterfly bush doesn't have
any new grouth as of yet.Should there be some new green
at this time or later.I can't remember what time it
got green last year. My wife tells me to stop pushing
the seasons and let nature take the course.

Thanks
Donnie

counting sheep. (%$#@%*#&@) sorry honey,I didn't
say that...honey put down that hoe... :(

Hmmm...I'm a little concerned. I'm in zone 7 and mine started growing over a month ago. Actually, they started in late March, but we got hit with 5 late freezes in early April and it killed back the new growth. Then they regrew more in early May. Hopefully yours will start soon.

I'll try cutting it back,I do know the butter fly
bushes can take a hard trimming and bounch back.

Thanks.

P.S. If this doesn't work I'll dig them up and off
to the nursery.

I found out what killed my butterfly bushes. My neighbors
son decided to go on weed patrol with round up, must
I say anymore. What makes me so mad is these plants
were on my property, but at least the young man wasn't
out getting in real trouble......
