The Orange eye butterflybush develops like a shrub. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. Orange eye butterflybush isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a purple colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 2 m in height.
Exposure Orange eye butterflybush
For a balanced development, it is best to position the the Orange eye butterflybush in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Orange eye butterflybush plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.During the winter months we can cover a portion of the soil near the roots with dry leaves or other mulch tissue; in this manner we will protect the plant from the harsh climate.
Watering Orange eye butterflybush
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 buckets of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks . 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.
Treatments Orange eye 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 Orange eye butterflybush
