Blooming a few weeks earlier than typical Buddleia, the 12” lavender-purple spikes are the ‘icing on the cake’ as they cover the compact rounded habit of gray-green foliage. Humdinger™ defined as “striking or extraordinary” perfectly describes this sweet garden treat.

Glorious summer color on fast-growing plants entrance butterflies and hummingbirds. This woody ornamental shrub doesn’t wake up until late spring, but the summer show is well worth the wait.
