Buddleja davidii is a fast-growing and undemanding shrub, native to China. It's ideal for a growing in wide range of situations, providing they are sunny and the soil is well-drained. The long, heavy flowering heads make a stunning late-summer display for four to six weeks, attracting clouds of butterflies and other insects.
For best results grow Buddleja davidii in well-drained soil in full sun. Prune hard in late-spring to keep plants within bounds and delay flowering to coincide with the peak butterfly period in August. Propagate by taking hardwood cuttings in winter.

Beautiful flower vigourous shrub, flowers are great at attracting butterflies, especially Painted lady, peacocks and 1 or 2 Red admirals. I always prune hard in early spring to allow time to establish over the summer months, flowering on this years growth.
