Buddleia (Butterfly Bush)

Buddleia (Butterfly Bush)

SKU: 115156484236

Buddleia is an easy and fast-growing shrub, that will suit any garden; great for borders and pots. Commonly known as the butterfly bush, the flower heads are full of nectar and are a magnet for many insects.

Grow buddleia in moist but well-drained soil in full sun. Deadhead flowers to encourage more to form and cut back hard in late spring to prevent the shrub from becoming too big. This will also ensure flowering occurs slightly later in the season, meaning there is plenty of pollen and nectar available for butterflies in late summer.

While relatively trouble-free, it’s worth noting that buddleijas are on the invasive plants register and will readily escape onto train tracks, scrub land and into brickwork.
