Jumbo Kaleidoscope Butterfly Bush

Jumbo Kaleidoscope Butterfly Bush

The first butterfly bush with multicoloured flowers.

Step into a living mosaic with the Kaleidoscope Butterfly Bush, the first of its kind to weave a tapestry of lavender, pink and tangerine blossoms on a single panicle. This hardy shrub, reaching 6-8', is a beacon for butterflies and hummingbirds, flourishing from late summer into the depths of fall. Its vigour is undiminished by heat, drought or poor soil, ensuring a low-maintenance presence in your garden. The blooms are perfect for creating fragrant, vivid bouquets.

Important Shipping Notes:

Breck's times its shipments from Holland so that bulbs and bareroots arrive at the proper planting time (depending on climatic conditions) for each area of North America. To promote optimum stress protection in transit and your success in the garden, bareroot perennials are kept in the ground in our nurseries until fully dormant. In the Fall, these plants tend to arrive at the later end of the shipping window below.

We will pack and ship your order based on the following schedules. The type of product you order or the weather may affect the anticipated shipping schedule below. Based on the contents of your order we always strive to ship your order complete, and as early as possible in the planting season to allow for the best root development once planted.
