Butterfly Bush (Buddleia)

Name Butterfly Bush
Botanical Name Buddleia

Full sun brings out the best in this perennial and the results are not just the large purple, pink, yellow or white blossoms. It draws the attention of butterflies and you can "host" plenty of them as the bush grows to as much as 6 feet. You will enjoy its blooms beginning in June and all through Sept. Works well as a cut flower if you want to sneak a couple of branches away from the feasting, beautiful butterflies. Pictures from Walters Gardens Inc.
