Nature's Beauty

The above flower is commonly referred to as a Blue Butterfly (Rotheca Myricoides) which is from the Butterfly Bush. Its common name is obviously derived from the flowers look and shape. The Butterfly Bush is a fast growth evergreen shrub that can get up to 10-feet tall and wide and its leaves are 3 to 4-inches long. It is a partial shade plant that requires regular watering. The Butterfly Bush was originally native to East Africa but is now enjoyed in many warm regions of the world.
