Brings Butterflies in Droves
Alluring nectar-rich, honey-scented flowers draw butterflies in droves. Large 8” trusses are comprised of hundreds of enchanting deep royal-purple florets each dotted with a sparkling orange eye. Slightly smaller-statured than classics with arching gray-green foliage allows for placement in space-challenged gardens. Buddleia Midnight, from the Buzz™ Series, allows for placement in gardens with less real estate. Smaller, at about 2/3rd the size of classic varieties but mighty, this compact shrub still flaunts full-sized flowers. Glorious summer color on fast-growing plants, Butterfly Bushes are quite drought tolerant once established in the landscape.
