The blue-violet blooms on this plant flower continuously. During blooming season, no deadheading will be required to keep your Blue Chip Jr. looking its best. The improved butterfly bush only stands around two feet high and does well as fragrant groundcover or as a container plant. Because of its small stature, this plant can thrive even in the smallest spaces. You won't need to fuss over Blue Chip Jr. All the care that is required is a spring pruning. It can even thrive in drought conditions. The fact that this plant is hardy is great news because you'll want to be entertained by hummingbirds and butterflies all summer long. You won't have to worry about deer coming by for a snack, though. They tend to leave this little beauty alone. Since this version of Buddleia does not seed, it will not be regulated as an invasive species, so you won't have to worry about unwanted spreading. It has a long flowering period, and you'll enjoy the blooms from early summer until autumn's first frost. The Buddleia Lo & Behold Blue Chip Jr. grows well in planting zones 5-9.

This variety of Buddleia has been approved as a seedless butterfly bush cultivar and is considered sterile, producing less than two percent viable seeds, so it will not spread. It is approved for sale in all states without restriction. https://www.oregon.gov/ODA/programs/NurseryChristmasTree/Pages/ButterflyBush.aspx

Deer love it
Corn fed up from IA wrote on July 04, 2017:

I just bought my first dwarf butterfly bush ( tutti fruiti ) from my local garden center and planted it in a 3' tall cement culvert section that i painted. I have only had it for a week but have already had butterflies and humming birds come to it. I love it. I do want to say that this bush is not deer proof as it is described. I have had deer eat on it quite a bit, so don't believe what is said that deer tend to leave this little beauty alone. Not true. Now i have to spend as much for fencing as I did for the bush just to keep the stinking deer off of it. I had to pay $53 for my bush. I gave it 3 stars only because the article describing it says that deer tend to leave it alone. Otherwise I would have rated it higher.
