The Buddleia 'Butterfly Candy Lila Sweetheart' is made up of compact and perfectly formed, patio butterfly bushes that are guaranteed to add some late summer colour and gorgeous fragrance to your floral displays with intense flower spires.
The short stems and compact growing habit of this gorgeous 'Butterfly Candy' collection make these patio buddleias ideal for growing in smaller gardens, or pots and containers around your patio or decking area. Busting into life in July, the beautiful lilac blooms will last through to the start of autumn where the brightly coloured spires of tiny flowers will light up your patio pots or mixed borders.
These compacts buddleias are winter hardy and very easy to grow - just plant them in a sunny spot in the garden where they will thrive. Plus, their masses of brightly-coloured, fragrant flowers are adored by many beneficial pollinators and will attract clouds of butterflies and bees to your garden.
Supplied as an established plant, in a 9cm pot, ready to pot on or plant out.
Plant Buddleia in garden borders in any moist, well drained garden soil, in full sun or semi-shade.
This series are also ideal in patio containers using soil-based compost such as John Innes No.3.
Prune Buddleia in March, once the hardest frosts are over, as the new growth begins to show.
Firstly, remove any dead, diseased, damaged, or weak stems, before pruning all off the remaining stems back to form a low framework.
Drought tolerant once established.
