Additional Information about Lo and Behold Buddleias:
Buddleia Lo and Behold Purple Haze is a different duck than all the other Lo & Behold Buddleia. Developed by Denny Werner of NCSU, this hybrid selection is a low, wide-spreading variety that makes it a great selection for use as a ground cover or in a decorative container. Like all of the Lo & Behold® series, we had to test it for sterility. This is a sterile variety that does not produce unwanted seedlings. Lo and Behold Blue Chip Buddleia is the first cultivar to be released to commerce in a new miniature butterfly bush series named LO AND BEHOLD . This series is being developed at the Raulston Arboretum in North Carolina. Plants with additional flower colors are expected to be introduced in this series in the future. 'Blue Chip' plants grow in manageable, well-branched mounds to only 2' tall and feature intense blue flowers in spike-like terminal and axillary clusters. Flowers bloom continuously from June to September and sometimes to first frost. Flowers are fragrant, and, as the common name suggests, very attractive to butterflies. Willowy, elliptic leaves are green to gray-green. 'Blue Chip' is a complex hybrid originating as a third generation descendant from a hand pollinated cross of B. 'Honeycomb' and (B. 'Nanho Purple x B. lindleyana). U.S. Plant Patent PP19,991 was issued on May 12, 2009.
