The Black Knight Buddleia has been one of the most successful cultivars within its species. This bush was accorded the RHS Award of Garden Merit back in 1993 and has remained a popular butterfly plant since. Its big, full, scented blooms emerge in late Spring to early Summer in deep shades of purplish blue, appearing almost black at times.

The bush has the classic growth habit of others of the species, growing lanky and upright with arching, flexible stems. The dark flowers are nectar rich and attractive to butterflies and hummingbirds. Black Knight Buddleia flowers can also be found peeking out of fresh flower arrangements at times, adding a sense of mystery and elegance to many displays.

While Buddleias are an excellent nectar source for adult Butterflies, they are not hosts. A balanced Butterfly habitat should also include other varied species of host plants.

Hybrid buddleias are typically infertile, but should still be grown responsibly. Although this hybrid does not set large amounts of viable seed, spent flowers should be trimmed away and disposed of to prevent the spread beyond the intended planting area.

Although there are no restrictions on the shipping of Buddleia hybrids that we are aware of, we do not ship any Buddleias to Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska or Hawaii out of an abundance of caution as those states have concerns about the invasiveness of Buddliea davidii species.
