Buddleia HUMDINGER™ ‘Little Nugget’


Butterfly Bush

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.106.670


The fragrant, arching clusters of Butterfly Bush are irresistible to hummingbirds and butterflies. Really a shrub, plants are best treated like perennials and pruned back hard each spring, to maintain a compact, bushy habit. The HUMDINGER™ series blooms a few weeks earlier and is short in stature. This selection with its wide and low habit features masses of long wands of magenta-purple flowers that deepen to blue-purple, over brilliant gold foliage. Introduced by Walters Gardens, Inc., Zeeland, Michigan. USPP#28152: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
