Planting & Care
Plant in late spring, once the soil has had a chance to warm up. If grown in a container and fairly robust then you can leave planting to as late as August. Loosen the soil, mix in compost, and dig a hole twice the diameter of the plant container. When placing the plant in the hole, the top of the rootball should be level with the soil surface. Space plants 5 to 10 feet apart, depending on the variety.

Sunlight: Sun to Full Sun

Soil: Mostly Sand to Some Clay. pH range 5.5 to 6.5

Water: Semi-Arid to Moist.

Temprature: Being killed by temperatures below about −15 to −20 °C (5 to −4 °F).

Fertilizer: Feeding is best done in the spring straight after pruning. Although they can grow with minimal nutrients, they need additional feeding to produce the best flowers . A general purpose high potash (potassium) feed is best. With NPK (nitrogen, phosphate and potassium) in the best ratio for woody shrubs (NPK 5.3 - 7.5 - 10.0).

  • Buddlejas need savage pruning, especially the taller varieties.
  • But care must be taken to do this in late-spring when the hardest weather is over.
  • Prune them in autumn and they can die.
  • If you’re dealing with an overgrown buddleja take one half down in one year (in March) and the second half in the following year (again in March).
  • Each spring, apply a thin layer of compost and mulch to retain moisture and control weeds.

Medicinal use:
  • Butterfly bushes are also utilized in traditional Korean medicine which uses its flower buds to treat people with inflammatory conditions and headache.
  • Those are a lot of benefits from one shrub-like plant.

Ornamental use:
  • it almost seems like nature designed this plant especially for butterflies.
  • Not only is Butterfly Bush full of delicious nectar that butterflies love to feed on for a long duration, it also has a wonderful honey-like fragrance that attracts butterflies in large numbers.
