Your Lo and Behold 'Blue Chip' Butterfly Bush is a dwarf, compact grower that really never needs pruning. Deadheading throughout the season to remove faded flowers is fine. Just make sure not to snip off new buds that have yet to form! This is a Buddleia that I can recommend for mass planting.

I fertilize all Buddleia one time a year in the early spring when I see new growth beginning to emerge. I feed them with either a slow-release flower fertilizer or a natural or organic plant food.

Have yet to see any serious problems with insects or disease on Lo and Behold 'Blue Chip' Butterfly Bush. On rare occasions I've seen aphids visit the plants. If this happens you could spray with a liquid solution of Neem oil. Always follow instructions on product label for mixing instructions and application rates. Always plant buddleia in well-drained soils as they are prone to root rot if their feet stay too wet.

I live in the Greenville SC area, what will this plant look like in the winter? Does it lose it's green leaves?
