white butterfly bush

12 Jul

This one lives in a row of shrubs on the north side of the back yard. Other shrubs around it had grown so large they were blocking the sunlight. In an attempt to get to the light, this bush was growing sideways, almost parallel to the ground. Early this spring I cut it back to the base and raised the canopy of the shrubs around it by trimming away low hanging limbs to let in more light. It seems to have worked because the bush has come back and is (almost) completely upright.
