Orange Sceptre is an ever blooming butterfly bush in our zone. There have
been only a couple of days all year where we have not had flowers.
Orange Sceptre Butterfly Bush is a drought tolerant butterfly and
hummingbird wonder. The soft, felty leaves are more green than gray but
have that Lamb's Ear look and feel to them.
Reported to get six feet tall, after two years ours is about four. We
do have really severe summers though and that may slow the growth a bit.
The picture of the Orange Sceptre bush at the bottom shows how
much taller it is than Evil Ways
Butterfly Bush which is the bright green shrub in the right hand
As you can see below the flowers are actually orange with a green
stigma. What a beautiful flower!
