This bush, sometimes referred to as "summer lilac, is more appropriately referred to as the "butterfly bush". Ours have been attracting swallowtails and monarchs every day since the first blooms appeared. The bees also frequent them periodically.
As they are deer resistant - - not deer proof -- we will be adding more of them this fall.
