Buddleia davidii 'Guinevere' - Butterfly Bush

They're fragrant, colorful and they attract butterflies. Bold, long blooming flowers ignite an explosion of summer sales. Treat them like a perennial in the north; cut them back heavily in the spring for better flowering.

English Butterfly SeriesTM A great new series of compact Buddleia developed by Elizabeth Keep of East Malling England. Her breeding goal was to refine the habit of butterfly bush and she achieved her goal by creating well behaved, extra bushy plants that are roughly one third the size of typical davidii cultivars. Youll love the way they look in containers and in gardens. A stray seedling discovered by one of Mike Dirrs student workers, Cindy Burkes...has black-purple, fragrant flowers and dark green leaves. It is an improved Black Knight with superior flowers and form.

Synonyms: Buddleja davidii, Buddleia variabilis, Buddleja variabilis
