A low spreading charmer of a butterfly bush, Lo & Behold 'Purple Haze'  has uniquely horizontal branches that produce an abundance of fragrant dark purple-blue flowers. The flowers radiate outward and downward like a pinwheel, and are continuous from mid summer to frost.  This is a sterile variety that does not produce unwanted seedlings.  It makes a great mass planting or foundation planting, or can be incorporated into perennial gardens and mixed borders.

  • Planted 5 (2 two years ago, 3 more last year), and only 2 came back this spring. They are quite attractive while blooming, and bloom for a long period, attracting many butterflies. But apparently not reliable.

  • This shrub was perfect in the border garden. It kept producing flowers without deadheading and they bloomed a long time.
