RE: Buddleia butterfly bush

wow, really nice. I love butterfly bush and didn't know they would bloom 1st year from seed.

RE: Buddleia butterfly bush

Wow how beautiful :)

Sure wish I could grow some here, but as of last year they are now a class B Noxious Weed in WA State :(
I see your Liatris back there; sure hope I can get some to germinate for me this year.


RE: Buddleia butterfly bush

Buddleia does not self seed for us and dies back to the ground each winter. It has to be well mulched or will not come back in the spring.

I ws some white liatris last year. Hope to see some bloom from them this summer.
