Swallowtail Having Dinner by Annash
Planted a dwarf butterfly bush last year as a memorial for a good friend It didn't do well this winter...hardly any greenery and now its leaves turned brown. Nothing grew from old wood even though it had been cut back. Tried slow release fertilizer which didn't seem to help. Gardener where it was bought said a lot of these were lost because of severe winter. I was given another which I'll probably plant next to it in hopes it will come back in the spring. But because my friend's whole family was involved in planting this with pictures and all, really hoping for a miracle.
