Fertilization Fountain butterflybush
Letís remember to fertilize our shrubs often; we can fertilize enriching our soil with manure, at the end of the winter; or we can give it a fertilizer for flowering plants, every 20-25 days, when watering. If the shrubs are large or cover a large area, we can use a slow release granular fertilizer, to be used every 3-4 months. In the spring letís favour fertilizers rich in nitrogen and potassium, to favour the development of a new vegetation and of flowerings.

Generalities Fountain butterflybush
The Fountain butterflybush develops like a shrub. Fountain butterflybush isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a purple colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 3 m in height. They tend to develop like erect small trees.

Watering Fountain butterflybushTenere asciutto
Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases. We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 2-3 weeks .

Treatments Fountain butterflybush
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Fountain butterflybush
These shrubs favour a soft and deep, but well drained soil.
