Thursday in the Garden
Butterfly Flower because the blooms look like blue butterflies. But here is what other people call it. Butterfly Bush, Oxford Bush, Cambridge Bush 'Ugandense'. It's Latin name is Rotheca myricoides. We love it because it blooms all year.
Red Cestrum Cestrum newellii looks sort of similar. It blooms all year. We bought some more this year and tried planting it in the flower bed. We will see how it does.
