I’ve done a couple of post on this little mini butterfly bush called Lo and Behold by Proven Winners. HERE is one of those post and I give details on the specifications. I really love it and tried to find more this year. It really is a mini and though it’s growing a bit taller in my garden than it’s 3 feet tag describes, I’m happy with the size. It’s pest free, maintenance free, and blooms non stop. Most of the time it is covered in butterflies. Take a look at how it is doing in my garden this year. It was planted Spring of 08.
And I really do love the little touches of orange. My garden loves being organic. Earlier had a horrible problem with earwigs. I left them alone cause they eat Japanese beetle grubs. Well wouldn’t you know it—-hardly any Japanese beetles which do more harm than the earwigs. Yea for mother nature.
Oh, and look at my Limelight hydrangea getting ready to bloom!
It has the most beautiful blooms from now till Autumn when they will turn a burgundy color.
Limelight gets to over 5 feet tall and will make a grand statement on this corner! And here is Little Lamb. Bless its heart its blooms are huge and this little hydrangea buckles under the weight. She needs to get older so she can carry all this beauty. For now, I have her plopped up with a tomato cage. I see I need to weed;). Now isn’t that a lot of blooms for a shrub only a year old. Imagine what it will do in a year or too. They hydrangeas by Proven Winners bloom for a very long time.
