Butterfly Bush

Gardeners who make room for a Buddleia in the landscape will soon discover that it’s a one-stop buffet for many species of butterflies. The long flower panicles are comprised of many individual blooms, each with a rich store of nectar, which is why you will observe happy butterflies lingering over and around the shrub for long periods on warm, sunny days. Flowering happens on new wood, so frigid zone 5 winters have no effect on the summer show. Plant butterfly bush in full sun in average soil, and cut plants back in early spring to encourage healthy branching.
