I'm sure it will be happy, jimp. I've seen it growing wild on Scottish mountains.

It could be still OK. Last year's leaves die off in the spring and the new ones start coming through. On the other hand, it could have died from drought in a small pot with no watering. Plant it out somewhere damp and hope for the best.

I just wondered why you decided on Holly Blue. All blue butterflies are 'small' relative to, say, the Vanessids. If you said to me 'What's this medium sized black bird?', it could be blackbird, chough, grackle depending on exact description and location.

Which is why I wonder about fidget's conclusion about the butterfly's identity. No picture, no description and no location = no identification.
