Description for Buddleia, Butterfly Bush

Butterfly bushes (Buddleia davidii) are grown for their long panicles of colorful flowers and their ability to attract butterflies and beneficial insects. They bloom in spring and summer, but the naturally attractive shape of the shrub and evergreen foliage keep the bush interesting, even when it is not in bloom. These tough plants tolerate a variety of conditions and are hardy.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Butterfly Bush Yellow Early Summer to Mid Autumn. 6-12 feet Easy.

Planting and care

Give your butterfly bush plenty of room. The plant tag will tell you the mature size of the cultivar you have chosen. Although butterfly bushes tolerate severe pruning to maintain a smaller size, you can reduce the time you will spend pruning by planting it in a location with plenty of room for the plant to develop its natural size and shape.
