Blooming a few weeks earlier than typical Buddleia, the 5-6” magenta-purple fragrant spikes deepen to blue-purple. Chartreuse foliage with luminous yellow highlights is a perfect backdrop to the sparkling flowers. Compact, wide habit.

From the Humdinger® Collection, aptly named, as Buddleia Little Nugget 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.
