    They get very large and wide so the more space the better.

    Thank you. It was a Mother's Day present. I don't want to bother the neighbors with too close to our fence.

    Butterfly bushes can get quiet large, but measure 3 feet from fence . I planted one and i used a round piece of land scape fabric around it I also put out mulch to keep weeds at bay. when i plant roses i put landscape fabric then mulch.
