Buddleia HUMDINGER® ‘Orchid Annie’’


Butterfly Bush

USDA Zone: 5-9

Plant number: 1.101.700


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 is extremely floriferous with masses of long wands of orchid-purple flowers over medium green foliage. Introduced by Walters Gardens, Inc., Zeeland, Michigan. USPP#28176: unlicensed propagation prohibited.
