Butterfly Bush (Buddleia Davidii Mix)

Start this beautiful perennial using Butterfly Bush seeds! It readily establishes itself from flower seed and has very fast and vigorous growth. This Buddleia Butterfly Bush mix of colors will attract both hummingbirds and butterflies alike!

While hummingbirds prefer the darker bloom colors of purple, butterflies prefer the lighter bloom colors of lilac and white.

Also called Summer Lilac, the flower seeds can be started indoors several weeks before the last frost. Transplant the seedlings after the danger of frost have passed. After the Summer Lilac Butterfly Bush is established from flower seed it is fairly drought tolerant and it is usually resistant to deer.

Butterfly Bush care would include following a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep extensive root system. Feed with a general-purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Cut the plant back hard (down to 10 inches) in early spring.

The Butterfly Bush flowers on new growth and will have more blooms and larger blooms when cutting back. Regular deadheading will help prevent any unwanted spread of Buddleia.
