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


Grows 6-8' ht x 4-6' sp

This Butterfly Bush is fast growing and has a rounded growth habit. Showy, fragrant, dark purple flower spikes truly attract butterflies. Flowers are produced from spring through frost. Easily grown in average, well-drained soils, in full sun. Removal of spent flowers will encourage additional blooms during the growing season. Black Knight Butterfly bush is a deciduous shrub. Cut back, almost to the ground, in late winter to maintain its shape. Best grown in mass plantings in borders and butterfly gardens.
