One of the compact English Butterfly™ Series bred by Elizabeth Keep and named after butterflies found in Britain, Buddleia Peacock™ remains 4–5ft tall and a bit wider. It's well suited to small spaces, borders, butterfly gardens, or large containers, where its rich pink, scented blooms will delight butterflies and hummingbirds and all manner of garden visitors from midsummer until frost. Deer resistant and drought tolerant. 'Peakeep'
There are some 70 species of shrubs and small trees in the genus Buddleia, the best being Asian natives. The most popular are varieties of B. davidii and its hybrids with long stems ending in panicles of flowers that are ambrosia to butterflies. In cold-winter climates such as ours, plants are often killed almost to the ground. We prune back to live wood in spring and always have a spectacular show starting in midsummer. Best in full sun and moist but well-drained soil.
