Buddleja

Butterfly Bush

Around midsummer, when the pendulous racemes of flowers weigh down its boughs, it’s hard to decide which is more satisfying: Buddleia’s abundant, often fragrant blossoms, or the myriad butterflies they attract.

This uncommon South African Buddleja soothes the garden with a composed evergreen appearance. Offsetting the darker green-gray leaf tops, a downy white felt envelops the new growth, foliar undersides and arching stems. Tiny teeth and a bumpy texture define the long narrow, leatherlike foliage that’s reminiscent of willow leaves, while lavender flowers borne in short racemes embellish them.

Stage amid Molinia ‘Bergfreund’ and Sedum ‘Indian Chief’ for contrasting forms and color.

Size: 6' 0" high x 6' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered three Kniphofias and a Salvia a little over a week ago, and received them today. E-mail response to my web order was prompt and provided all the information I needed. The Kniphofias are nice, healthy, generous divisions. The Salvia is…good value for the price and very healthy.”
