Interesting Notes about Butterfly Bush:

The honey-scented fragrance of the Butterfly Bush draws the butterfly to the delicious rewards of the nectar. Hummingbirds delight in the same, but are initially attracted to the plant by colors like red or yellow. The Butterfly Bush is one of many excellent choices for drawing insects and birds and, as in life, it is important to create balance so that all who inhabit benefit. Some of the hybrids currently available have either reduced fertility or the seeds produced are sterile which help to reduce the colonizing nature of this perennial.
