Seems I heard someone talking to Howard about how the butterfly bush is evasive and killing off other plants. We have one in our flower bed. Should we get rid of it or is it okay?

Thanks

Bill

Is yours INvasive? I have never heard of a butterfly bush taking over and killing off other plants. It can become quite a lrge shrub but can be easily controlled by pruning in the winter.

Evasive means elusive, invasive means intrusive
