Q.Can I Plant A Dwarf Butterfly Bush Across From A Black Walnut Tree?

This is not under the walnut tree. It is probably a good 30 feet or so from the tree itself.

I can't find a source that lists butterfly bush as juglone tolerant. It is recommended, though, that plants be 50 to 80 feet from the black walnut if there is any sensitivity.
