Buddleia General Information

This compact butterfly bush is easy care with the same appeal of traditional varieties - fragrant, butterfly magnet, a stunning hedge and great in a container. This Buddleia is restricted from Oregon and Washington. Buddleias are shipped during our spring shipping season only. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

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.
