Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Buddleia is slightly difficult to grow and needs to be planted in locations where it does not stay wet. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

English Butterfly™ Series is great new series of compact Butterfly bushes. Developed by Elizabeth Keep of East Malling England. These well behaved and easy to grow plants will make a stunning impact to any garden. The blooms are deep rich colors born on extra bushy plants, roughly 1/3 the size of typical davidiii cultivars.
