Buddleja

Butterfly Bush

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

Buddleja x weyeriana ‘Bicolor’ full sun  shade lover

Hats off to esteemed horticulturist Michael Dirr for this unprecedented breakthrough hybrid with 8 to 10 in. long trusses simultaneously featuring two completely different hues. ‘Bicolor’s happy-looking colorful fusion, includes lavender buds and peachy pink blooms, which attain a canary yellow cast as they mature. Amid a compact, easily managed profile clothed in soft gray-green leaves, the fragrant spectacle arrives during the dog days of summer, luring butterflies and appearing particularly upbeat when matched with Panicum ‘Cloud Nine’ and Lavandula ‘Violet Intrigue’.

Blooms July – early October.

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high x 6' 0"–8' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
