The Black Knight Butterfly Bush was pretty small - I guess I was hoping for a larger plant, as it's miniscule compared to its partner.
However, considering that I could not get ANY Black Knight where I live, or even 200 miles away, I was very excited to even get this little guy.
It was completely green, very healthy, and the soil in the pot was still moist!
Here in zone 5, I mulch heavily in the winter - a foot deep covering in leaves and evergreen boughs, so mine usually make it. This winter had many freeze/thaw cycles, so one of them did not.
Thank you for your selection - I was very happy to be able to purchase a Black Knight. It will catch up.
