MONARCH® PRINCE CHARMING BUTTERFLY BUSH

Buy Monarch® Blue Knight Butterfly Bush online. 'Prince Charming' is truly a color break for the Buddleia genus. 10" long flower spikes will stun you with their bright cerise pink color. Compared to 'Queen of Hearts', 'Prince Charming' is closer to raspberry pink than purple. In mid to late summer, its upright, gumdrop shaped habit is covered with intensely colored flowers and blooms for many weeks.

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.
