I bought my very first Buddleia this past Spring, called Petite Plum Dwarf Butterfly Bush. My plan was to plant it in a container and leave it on my patio, year round. It didn't take long for me to start wondering if this plant would get too big for the 14" pot I planted it in. Here it is only a few months after I bought it.
It started to bloom in July and I have been thoroughly enjoying it's lovely fragrance. A little hummingbird has also been checking out the blooms, but I have yet to see a butterfly. 

I don't know what to do with it this fall, whether to leave it in this pot on our patio as planned, or to plant it in a less than suitable (shady) place in my yard. Any suggestions would be very welcome!
