Butterfly bush question

Hello! I live in zone 6a and we had a very hard, nasty winter. I cut 2 of my butterfly bushes back in the fall and left the 3rd as it was (I kind of forgot about it, it's off to the side of the property). None of the 3 have any signs of spring growth on them. I think things are coming in late this spring because of how cold it is, but seriously nothing green at all. Any chance they will come back or should I just dig them out (they're all quite large and mature) and call it a loss?
Thanks for any advice!

Re: Butterfly bush question

  • That's funny that it's a noxious weed there! They're pretty and were here when we bought the house so I've never thought of them that way. I'm pretty sure they've frozen to death though and am not looking forward to digging out 3 of them.

  • We are in zone 7 (central New York) and our butterfly bush did not grow back either! :(

  • We are in North eastern PA and our butterfly bush didn't come back this year either. My BIL is a landscaper and said a lot of people lost them due to the especially harsh winter we had.
