Buddleia davidii

Summer Lilac

All summer long, these fast-growing shrubs produce masses of fragrant flower clusters attractive to butterflies, moths and hummingbirds. Several cultivars of varying height and flower color are available. Plants need full sun or light shade to bloom profusely. Prune hard before new growth begins in spring. Pinch out the tips of new top growth to promote a more compact shrub, and remove old flowers to encourage new blooms. Blossoms are more visible when foliage is kept low.

Shoots of arching, spikelike flowers emerge from dark green leaves with white, feltlike undersides. Although most common cultivars of the deciduous or semievergreen Butterfly Bush bloom purple, it is shown here in white.
