Information on our best selling Butterfly Bushes:
Buddleia Lo and Behold Series: This miniature series of butterfly bushes has all the appeal of its big brothers only in a smaller package! Lo and beholds flower from mid summer to frost. Pruning is generally not needed, but they may be trimmed in spring before new growth appears. Fragrant flowers are born in masses. They are Deer resistant and attract butterflies and hummingbirds like a magnet.
Black Knight Buddleia: This tall buddleia produces spectacular summer color from lightly fragrant, dark violet-purple flower spikes. Its a fast growing bush that works well when planted as a foundation shrub, accent plant or as a background in borders. Slightly hardier than other varieties, but may die to ground in cold winter areas, re-emerging vigorously in spring from the base.
Buddleia Nanho Blue: Nanho Blue produces Silvery, willow-like foliage with a compact habit. If you’re looking for a smaller, less wild-looking buddleia, this is the one for you. The silvery leaves provide the perfect backdrop for the soft lavender-blue flowers. Though the blooms are slightly smaller than other buddleias, but as you’ll find out it is very floriferous.
Petite Tutti Frutti Buddleia: Part of the Flutterby Petite™ Series, Buddleia Petite Tutti Frutti has continuous pink blooms from summer until frost. Only reaches 36″ tall at maximum height so this one is perfect for even smaller gardens.
How to Care for your Butterfly Bush Shrubs:
Buddleias are best planted in Full to Partial Sun as this is where they produce the most flowers without stretching. Very little is needed as far as care is concerned with Buddleias. A supplemental watering is sometimes beneficial during periods of prolonged drought.dead-heading is not necessary but will stop the plant from re-seeding and help it to produce new flowers. In the north buddlieas should be pruned down to 12″ from the ground. Pruning will help encourage new shoots as buddleias flower on new growth.
