Buddleia

Buddleia

We’re hoping for brighter weather ahead once this rain passes but still many plants you can add to your garden to brighten it up. One is Buddleia, Buddleia is an easy and fast-growing shrub, that will suit any garden where there is some sun and well-drained soil. There are large and smaller varieties, good for any garden space from borders to pots. Commonly known as the butterfly bush, the flower heads are full of nectar and are a magnet for many insects. Flowers come in a wide range of colours including purple, blue, pink and white and even yellow. Flowers appear continuously for around four to six weeks in late summer. Deadhead the flowers to encourage more to form and cut back hard in late spring to prevent the shrub from becoming too big as they flower off of the new seasons growth. This will also ensure flowering occurs slightly later in the season, meaning there is plenty of pollen and nectar available for butterflies and other insects. These wonderful shrubs are available here at Woldens in all sizes and colours species wise so why not add this insect loving, colourful shrub to your garden 🌸
