Butterfly bush are drought tolerant plants that prefer growing in a location that provides well-drained soil and plenty of sunshine. A little afternoon shade won't hurt. Buzz Magenta is a dwarf crape myrtle that grows half the size of standard butterfly bush. This makes it perfect for smaller garden spaces and containers.

To plant, dig a hole no deeper than the root ball and two to three times the width of the root ball and fill it with water. If the hole drains within a few hours, you have good drainage. If the water is still standing 12 hours later, improve the drainage in your bed, perhaps by establishing a raised bed or raised mound. Turn and break up the soil removed from the planting hole. Mix in some organic compost if the native soil is clay or compacted soil. Remove your plant from its container and carefully but firmly loosen the root ball. Set the plant into the hole you've prepared, making sure the top of the root ball is slightly above the soil level. Pull your backfill soil mixture around the root ball in the hole, tamping as you go to remove air pockets. Then water thoroughly and cover with a one to two-inch layer of mulch.

I fertilize butterfly bush with a well-balanced flower food one time a year after new growth begins to emerge in spring.

I prune the dwarf butterfly bushes back to about 6 to 12 inches in height before new growth begins to emerge in late winter or early spring.

I've seen very few serious insect, pest or disease problems with this variety. Consistently wet soil can be a problem, so make sure to plant in well-drained garden soils or containers.
