Buddleja Plants

Buddleja plants or ‘Butterfly Bushes’ are easy to grow in most soil types and they have many flowers. Most Buddlejas are completely hardy but Halcyon Plants have a few buddleja varieties such as the lovely ‘Kewensis’, ‘Loricata’ and ‘Auriculata’ that will be fine in well drained warm spots which are well sheltered from freezing winds.

To keep buddleja in good order, prune back in the spring. Once well established you can take all buddleja almost back to the ground…there are a couple of exceptions to this rule so read up first!

Buddleja are popular plants as they attract butterflies and bees, being a good source of pollen and nectar from late June on through the summer.
