‘Miss Molly’ Butterfly Bush Care

Planting: Choose a sunny location with well-drained soil for your ‘Miss Molly’ Butterfly Bush. Ensure proper spacing to accommodate its mature size, typically around 4 to 5 feet in height and spread.

Watering: Water your ‘Miss Molly’ regularly, especially during the first growing season to establish its roots. Once established, it is moderately drought-tolerant but benefits from regular watering, particularly during dry spells.

Soil: ‘Miss Molly’ Butterfly Bush thrives in well-drained soil with a slightly acidic to neutral pH. Amend heavy or clay soils with organic matter to improve drainage and fertility.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the plant’s stems to prevent rot.

Fertilizing: Apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring to promote healthy growth and blooming. Avoid excessive fertilization, as it may promote more foliage growth than flowers.

Pruning: Prune your ‘Miss Molly’ Butterfly Bush in late winter or early spring to maintain its shape and size. Remove any dead, damaged, or crossing branches, and trim back the tips of the branches to encourage bushiness and flowering.

Protection: ‘Miss Molly’ Butterfly Bush is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, monitor for common issues such as spider mites or powdery mildew, and treat promptly if necessary.

Winter Care: Provide a layer of mulch around the base of the plant to insulate the roots and protect them from freezing temperatures. In colder climates, consider wrapping the shrub with burlap for additional protection.
