FOTD – Butterfly Bush

Happy Friday everyone! That’s nearly the first week of 2023 over, can you Adam and Eve it?

Today’s flower is the amazing Butterfly Bush. I have never seen this before so I was delighted to have spotted this. I love its vibrant purple colour and the shape of this flower. Originally native to China and other parts of Asia, this flower can now be found worldwide, although can be viewed as a pest due to its ability to invade and outcompete other local species.

It is named butterfly bush as its flowers are a vital source of nutritious nectar for many butterfly species and I managed to catch a shot with a stunning butterfly in the frame.
