I also wish to attract more bees and butterflies, in particular the hummingbird moth!
I planted one miniature buddleia last year and there was a significant increase in butterflies.
I managed to pick up a half price hibiscus syriacus called "White Chiffon". These are supposed to attract bees and butterflies and the flowering period is August to October.
I have read that the more exotic types attract hummingbirds so they seem like the right sort of thing.
