Dwarf Butterfly Bush
Whether you have a garden that needs an attractive summer blooming border, or a backyard in need of an accent shrub, a dwarf butterfly bush could be the choice for you. This shrub blooms in the summer and certain dwarf varieties standing only two feet tall and wide. At two feet tall the dwarf butterfly bush can make for a great border with larger shrubs, or taller perennials behind it. With its compact shape it can fit in a smaller backyard where the common butterfly bush would outgrow. The sweet fragrance of the blooms attracts hummingbirds, butterflies, and with the added bonus of being deer tolerant.
