Mine is in it's pretty pink stage right now and I have lots of it. Here are a few areas where I have it planted.
You can probably tell that I am quite fond of Sedum. It is the most carefree plant I have. I do nothing with it and it looks good from the the moment the light green nubs break through the earth each spring.
This is my other butterfly bush at the opposite side of the deck. It has darker purple flowers and grew quite tall this year.
This bush used to be in another garden where it survived, but did not thrive. I think this is year 3 in this side garden.
