If you want your garden to be a favorite stopping off place for butterflies and hummingbirds, the Buddleias are a must have. This is an easy to grow shrub that establishes quickly and can reach heights above 6 feet tall in a single season.
Fragrant flowers that smell like lilacs are born in 8 to 10 inch panicles at the ends of gracefully arching long stems, hence the common name Summer Lilac. The flowers are rich in nectar and are irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds, and grow in a variety of colors, ranging from dark almost black purples, pale pastel blue and pink toned lavenders and golden, buttery pastel yellows.
Nanho Blue Buddleia produces delicate mauve bluish purple flowers that cluster along the panicles characteristic to this species. This cultivar can grow leggily to 10 feet, but performs best if regularly trimmed into a 3 to 5 foot bush and planted in full sun.
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.
We know of no shipping restrictions for hybrid Buddeias, however, we do not ship Buddleias to Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska or Hawaii out of an abundance of caution as those states have concerns about the invasiveness of the Buddliea davidii species.
