Buddleia General Information

Buddleia are fragrant, long-blooming, attractive to beneficial pollinators and also quite deer resistant. This Buddleia is restricted from Oregon and Washington.

Buddleia Plant Care

Very late to break dormancy in spring. May die back to ground in northern climates. Blooms on new wood. Heavy pruning is not needed, but may be trimmed in spring after new growth emerges, if desired. Grow in full sun with well-drained soil.
