I have always loved to see plants “trained” into a small butterfly bush, especially when they are plants we don’t normally see grown as trees.

Plants like a standard lantana tree or coleus tree.

The buddleia or the butterfly bush is another one.

In some states the buddleia is considered a invasive species (BBC) and they are trying to eradicate it.

There some non-invasive hybrids available but it’s typically considered an invasive plant in the garden.

Here are a few of our favorites:

  • InSpired Violet Butterfly Bush
  • Lo & Behold ‘Blue Chip Jr.’ Butterfly Bush
  • Sangria Red – Buddleia x Miss Molly Butterfly Bush

They attracts butterflies hence the name butterfly bushes.

The one in the picture is one of the newer Butterfly bush hybrids specially bred to “behave” and not grow out of bounds.

At the Garden Gate website, they have a nice tutorial with 4 steps and illustrations to walk you through the process of how to train a butterfly bush into a “standard” tree.

It’s lots of fun to explore training these plants into new shapes and trees.
