Butterfly bush

Butterfly bush

Hi - I went to the government place where they sell plants cheap to encourage people to plant stuff and bought some nice plants. The soil quality sucks - its like they just dug up the worst soil they could find and stuff the plants in it. I knocked off all that yucky soil and planted them in some nice potting soil (they are in pots of course) and they seem to be doing wondefully. That is not the point of this post though. One of the plants i have dicovered is a butterfly bush! This is good - i like butterflys. Do they do ok in pots? How can i encourage/make it have lots of buterfly bush babies? What sort of pots do they do best in? I googled it but sites focus on the history and stuff. Thanks - Lisa
