Most Fragrant Butterfly Bush for PA?

Winter has killed several of the smaller varieties over the years so I am looking for one 4-6' that has an amazing fragrance, reblooms and can be trimmed. Any suggestions?

huh.
I LOVE my Black Knight and Royal Red, but they get a bit big. Their scent and color are amazing. They did get slammed by the cold this year, but I just chopped them down to the ground and they're like new shrubs.

Check the Botany shop.

CEFreeman - Thanks for the link. Your bushes look amazing but wow. They are way too big for my space. I am hoping someone posts here with short and "sweet" varieties. Thanks so much!!!

Anyone know anything about Ellen's Blue? Is it fragrant? Do butterflies love it? I have seen butterfly bushes that are ignored by butterflies and even bees. Thanks for your help.

I have linked an article about research by Longwood Gardens on BB, its worth reading.
