I live in Missouri/St. Louis area. Can this shrub overwinter in a container? Where can I purchase one in the St. Chalres or St.Peters areas in Missouri?
Yes, you can overwinter butterfly bush in a container in your area. Be aware that excellent drainage - especially in winter - is imperative for success, so choose a container with large drainage holes, and use a fresh, light potting mix when you plant. Avoid placing the container where it will get dripped on from melting ice or snow in winter. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing which plants are in stock at your local garden center, but you can use our retailer locator to find garden centers near you that sell our plants: https://www.provenwinners.com/retailers/locate. Call a few of the results and ask if they carry Lo & Behold butterfly bush. If they do not, ask if they can order it for you from their suppliers.
