Plant details

Buddleja davidii has earned the common name of the butterfly bush thanks to its scented flowers which attract horders of hungry butterflies. 'Pink Beauty' has large pink flowers which cover the plant in summer. Buddlejas are very easy to grow, surviving in the harshest of conditions. They can be left unpruned but to encourage the best display of flowers and to keep the size of the plant in check, they are best cut back hard in early spring.
