Product Information

A totally new colour of the much loved ‘Butterfly Bush’!

This intoxicatingly fragrant beauty is incredibly easy to grow, totally hardy and will illuminate any sunny corner of your garden.

When in bloom during the early summer , its arching panicles will attract masses of butterflies and friendly pollinators, offering a safe haven for them to feast on nectar and collect pollen. This is a different species to the more familar blue buddleias and flowers on one year old wood, - it should be pruned to shape after flowering allowing new growth to appear in late summer. This is the growth that will bear blooms the following year. Eventual height and spread 3-4m but can be resticted by pruning.

Top Tips

'Sungold' should be pruned to shape after flowering allowing new growth to appear in late summer. This is the growth that will bear blooms the following year.

Care Information

  • Plant buddleias from late spring, as soon as the soil has had a chance to warm up. Container-grown plants can be planted right up to early autumn.
  • Buddleias perform best in a sunny position in well-drained soil, although will tolerate most conditions apart from wet, heavy clay.
  • Mulch with manure in autumn or add a general purpose fertiliser in late spring to improve the number of flowers.
  • Deadhead buddleia as the flowers fade to encourage a continuous supply of flower and take off every spent flower at the end of the year to prevent unwanted seedlings.
