Buddleja davidii, Butterfly Bush
These vigorous, semi-deciduous shrubs grow lance-shaped, gray-green leaves and long showy clusters of small fragrant flowers in mixed colours.
The nectar-filled flowers attract butterflies to the garden. They are also excellent for cutting.
It is recommended to prune back these plants every spring to keep them well-shaped and floriferous.
