Monarch on a Butterfly Bush

I painted this monarch butterfly on a Butterfly Bush or Buddleia. If you like butterflies but don't have one of these shrubs in your garden, it's a good idea to get one. At least one! I have three. The one that is in full sun grows the largest. I cut it back to the ground in fall or spring and it will grow to seven feet tall by August. That's when the blossoms come out and the butterflies swarm to it!
