Product Details

Product Details

If you have space for an island bed or hedge devoted to the aerial antics of butterflies, this trio of Buddleias will keep you, and them, entertained from midsummer until cold weather. The plants reach 4–8′ tall and are attractive when grouped together to form an island for butterflies or added separately to existing shrub borders. One plant of each variety; 3 plants total.

  • 'Miss Molly'—These dark, wine-red blooms will attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden all summer. The near-red flowers may be even more pronounced in southern gardens. More compact than most Butterfly Bushes, this is an excellent choice for smaller gardens and mixed borders. A Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety. PPAF
  • Peacock™—These rich pink, scented blooms delight butterflies and hummingbirds and all manner of garden visitors. This compact, drought-tolerant and deer-resistant shrub will add beauty to your borders. 'Peakeep'
  • Purple Emperor™—Excellent for small gardens, where its large, fragrant trusses with eye-catching, mauve-purple flowers can be appreciated in midsummer. A Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety. 'Pyrkeep'

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.

Every state has agricultural regulations that restrict the shipment of certain plants. We're sorry, but we cannot ship this item to the following states: OREGON, WASHINGTON.


The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.


We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Pronunciation: bud'lee-uh 

Buddleia davidii and its hybrids are fountain-shaped deciduous shrubs that produce long panicles of tiny, fragrant flowers in summer. The common name, Butterfly Bush, is inspired by the flocks of butterflies drawn to the flowers. Plants often blossom the first year after planting. Heights vary with varieties, from 4–7′.

Buddleia is at its best in full sun and moist but well-drained soil. Plants flower on the current season's growth, and bloom more profusely if stems are pruned back to 12–24″ as new shoots emerge in spring. In cold-winter climates such as ours in Connecticut, plants often die back almost to the ground; simply remove the deadwood in spring. Plants regrow vigorously and produce a spectacular show in summer, even from such a seemingly unpromising start.

Fertilize once a year, in early spring, with a good organic fertilizer. Plants are generally untroubled by pests or diseases.
