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 Purple 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.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Sunny or partly shaded area Well drained soil Semi-Arid to Moist. 20 C and above N-P-K ratio 5-8-10

Caring for Buddleia

  • Buddleias need full sun and fertile, well-drained soil.
  • Plant in spring or fall.
  • 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.
  • Water thoroughly.

Typical uses of Buddleia

Special features:

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.

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.
