Rosy blooms and a dwarf habit make this butterfly bush the perfect choice for adding color to smaller spaces in your garden or landscape. Panicles filled with pink flowers--some of them double--emerge at the ends of Le Petit's upward-angled branches. A dense plant with a fastigiate habit, Le Petit grows only 3 1/2-4' tall and 2 1/2-3' wide, making it ideal for sunny, perennial borders. Or plant it along a walkway to welcome visitors to your home with sweet color and fragrance. And when you need some indoor cheer, cut a few panicles and display them in your favorite vase. Le Petit is hardy to zone 6. Ships now as an established plant that offers an instant landscape boost.
