Many nurseries today simply pot-up small plant liners to larger containers and never touch them again until they’re sold. This is certainly NOT the case at Adcock’s. It takes a lot of time and effort to produce quality shrubs and trees.


5g Black Knight Butterfly Bush
Buddleia davidii 'Black Knight'

22-24" ht x 24-28" sp

Grows 6-8' ht x 3-5' sp

Dark purple blooms

This Butterfly Bush is fast growing and has a rounded growth habit. Showy, fragrant, dark purple flower spikes truly attract butterflies. Easily grown in average, well drained soils, in full sun. Removal of spent flowers will encourage additional blooms during the growing season. Cut back, almost to the ground, in late winter to maintain its shape. Best grown in mass plantings in borders and butterfly gardens. Does not usually make a good single specimen shrub. 

  • Hardy in zones 5-9
  • Full Sun,
