Beautiful blossoms

Beautiful blossoms, but I'll need to move it to sunnier location. Comes back nicely each year but I planted in too shady of location. It says full sun is best.

It blooms as advertised but not as hardy as I expected. I don't think it will survive this winter

I bought two, and both are beautiful, but the blossoms are completely purple on both. It doesn't have the pretty colors portrayed in the photo.

I bought three of these and they all arrived in the autumn last year. I followed the directions and planted them immediately, eager for the spring, but they looked dead to begin with; the leaves were brittle and crumbled and the root was completely dried out. As the snow melted and I started doing my spring garden clean-up, I looked at my butterfly bushes and saw that they were completely dead twigs just stuck in the ground. I hoped for the best and tenderly cared for them up until the start of May when it because very obvious that they were dead and not going to come back. Very disappointed.
