Why are you reporting this puzzle?
After the Texas freeze this past winter, most of my plants were gone. I thought this butterfly bush was dead and so I cut it right down to the ground (see the stump to the right). I was out looking at it the other day and to my great surprise - it is coming back!! There is more of coming back since I took this photo! Before the freeze, it was a large bush, about 4' tall and 3' wide, and the butterflies and bees loved it! I bought a couple more plants to replace it but I am so thrilled that this one is going to survive and make it!!
