Dramatic color contrast! A down-sized version of Butterfly Bush, its magenta-purple, fragrant flower panicles absolutely sparkle against well-branched cheerful gold foliage. Blooms a little earlier with the same punch of color as other classic varieties.

From the HumdingerŽ Collection, aptly named, as Buddleia Gold Drop is striking and extraordinary. Glorious summer color on fast-growing plants entrance butterflies and hummingbirds. This woody ornamental shrub does not wake up until late spring, but the summer show is well worth the wait. Butterfly bushes are quite drought tolerant once established in the landscape.
