Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • Make sure the root ball of Buddleia davidii is well-moistened by soaking in a bucket of lukewarm water before planting. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile soil. Improve poor garden soil by adding compost and granulated cow manure. Plant the root ball of Butterfly Bush at the appropriate depth in the hole - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly down. Water immediately after planting. The Butterfly Bush should stand in full sun or partial shade.
    Butterfly Bushes combine well with other plants
    This rich-flowering butterfly bush also makes a great border plant. You can create beautiful combinations with Acanthus Mollis and Echinacea Purpurea. Combine this Buddleia davidii in the shrubbery with Caryopteris Clandonensis 'Heavenly Blue' or the black elderberry (Sambucus Nigra 'Thundercloud').
