Butterfly bush is fun to grow and it grows very quickly. It attracts butterflies so you will have lots of butterflies wherever you plant your Buddleia butterfly bush. Our butterfly bushes are sold in mixed colors, but the most common color is the lavender color which is the typical color for a butterfly bush. These make excellent privacy screens if you need a quick, beautiful living plant wall, these will do the trick. Prefers full sun to bloom the best. Once established, the butterfly bush can grow 5 to 8 feet in a single year! One of the best reasons the butterfly bush is chosen. Is because the flowers smell good and it blooms through summer and fall, it has a very long bloom time. Also called the Summer Lilac.
Color: Mixed color, ranging from pink to purple, lavender purple being the most common color you will receive.

Our butterfly bush is doing good still. It doubled in size over the last 1 year we had it. Seems it doesn’t like the sun like I thought it was suppose to though seems the sun burns the flowers? Any idea?
Very healthy. Fast grower. Thank you weavers
