About This Plant

Sun; deciduous, with fuzzy white foliage and orange blooms throughout the warm season. As the name suggests, the blooms attract butterflies. The hairs on the leaves help them retain water.

Maintenance

Give it well-drained soil and full sun. Avoid overwatering, or root rot may occur. Prune in early spring; it blooms on new wood.
