Product Details

This easy-care, miniature 'Blue Chip Jr.' Butterfly Bush is part of the Lo & Behold® series of dwarf Buddleias developed at North Carolina State University. 'Blue Chip Jr.' grows just 18–24″ tall and has a neat, well-branched, and a nonstop flowering habit. It's excellent for small plots and containers or as a ground cover. Plus, it's drought and heat tolerant, and deer resistant, too. A Proven Winners®/Color Choice® variety. PP 26,581

There are some 70 species of shrubs and small trees in the genus 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.

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. We also ship a wide range of containers and planters, tools, supplies, fertilizers, garden wear, garden decor items, as well as indoor decorations like wreaths and dried bouquets when available. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the green Shipping Details box for each item. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at the expected time of delivery.


We guarantee to ship plants that are in prime condition for growing. If your order is damaged or fails to meet your expectations, we will cheerfully replace or refund it. Please contact our Customer Service Department at 1-800-503-9624 or email us at [email protected]. Please include your order number or customer number when contacting us.

Perfect little plants

Love these bushes. They don't grow too high and attract butterflies. Make a lovely border. Bought three two years ago and they wintered nicely. Will be buying more when they are ready for planting again.

Wonderful hard-working plant

To survive in my garden, plants need to be nearly care free, long-blooming and deer resistant. I'm crazy about these. Two seasons ago I placed two in front of three large Knockout roses and they're perfect. The blooming never stops till heavy frost. The color & form are excellent-- they are full, but compact and dense. Last season I planted three more in a large hillside mainly-evergreen garden-- a whole different environment, yet they were a wonderful addition. Ye gods, stop me before I plant some more!

Latin Name 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.
