When Is The Best Time To Trim A Butterfly Bush

?

Q: How much light does a butterfly bush require? What is the ideal amount of direct sunlight, and how often should it be provided? A: Butterfly bushes need at least six hours of bright indirect light (I recommend lighting that mimics the sun in mid-late afternoon). They don’t like to be bathed in direct sunlight all day long. If you’re not able to provide them enough bright indirect light, try growing them under plant lights for part of the day.
