If you want your garden to be a favorite stopping off place for butterflies and hummingbirds, the Buddleias are a must have. They are an easy to grow temperate flowering shrub that establishes quickly and usually blooms the first season.
Profuse, fragrant blooms that smell like lilacs are born in big panicles at ends of long, flexible arching stems, hence the common name Summer Lilac (not related to Lilacs).
Flowers are rich in nectar and irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds; grow in a variety of colors, from dark, almost black purples, pale pastel blue and pink toned lavenders, and golden, buttery yellows and brilliant white, like White Profusion, which is a reliable, heirloom classic that tends to bloom early and profusely.
Buddlieas are moderately cold tolerant and are recommended for Zones 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Generally, well established plants will freeze to the ground in Zones 5--7 and resprout in the Spring, and are evergreen elsewhere.
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 Buddleias, 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 regarding the Buddliea davidii species.
