Cottage Farms Bicolor Butterfly Bush Patio Tree is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back For Another I ordered 2 last spring (2018), they arrived in great shape and have been a great addition to my flower beds. The one in the front gets morning Sun and the one in back gets full sun, they are both doing great. Attracts so many different butterflies the bumble bees love it, hummingbirds and hummingbird moths are always here. Back for one more to put near bird bath for a little protection for birds

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Received my bi color Butterfly Tree a few weeks ago. It arrived in excellent condition, and I let it slowly acclimate to its new conditions. It is growing quite nicely and look forward to some extraordinary color blooms. I purchased a lot from Cottage Farms this year and have been quite pleased with the overall quality of shipping, service and health of plants. I have also given some plants as gifts and they were quite pleased as well. Zone 10b.
