The Black Knight Butterfly Bush is a deciduous shrub known for its deep purple, fragrant flowers that attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds. It grows 6-8 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide, with arching, vase-like shape and dark green leaves. Hardy in USDA zones 5-9, it thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, and is relatively drought-tolerant once established. This shrub is ideal for pollinator gardens, mixed borders, and as a specimen plant. Low-maintenance, it benefits from annual pruning in late winter or early spring to encourage vigorous growth and abundant blooms.
