The Silver Spring Fountain Butterfly Bush is unlike any butterfly bush because its leaves are alternate instead of opposite. However, this is not the only striking difference it also has long cascading panicles of flowers. The cascading panicles of flowers creates a arching habit that is similar to a weeping willow. By summer, this massive shrub is covered in blooms catching the eye of every local pollinator and garden in sight.
