Sweetly scented, dark purple flowers decorate this seedless Butterfly Bush from midsummer into fall. Flower spikes are huge and they're carried on stems that reach 4ft, growing taller in warmer areas. Butterflies find the blooms absolutely irresistible and swarm around them on warm summer afternoons. Being sterile, the blossoms last longer and the plant is noninvasive. A Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety. 'ILVOargus2' PPAF
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.
