Although this Buddleia has a shorter stature, its extremely dense, compact habit demands your attention in the garden. Very long 25 – 30cm, pure white flower panicles appear above the gum drop-like habit a few weeks sooner than you would expect for a Butterfly Bush. Although the best flower power is in its initial burst in mid to late summer, secondary flowers will extend the flowering season.
Buddleja davidii Humdinger Little Angel
Buddleja (Butterfly Bush)
Family : Buddlejaceae
A range of summer flowering shrubs that have been prized for their rich flowering and ability to survive in the most difficult conditions. They act as a magnate for Bees and Butterflies. Modern hybrids are increasingly compact while retaining flower size making them more suitable for the smaller garden.
The word “humdinger” is defined as “something that is very impressive or exciting.” That word definitely applies to this new collection of Buddleja! This collection features five new varieties of Butterfly Bush, each blooming a few weeks earlier than the members of the MONARCH® Collection. In addition to blooming starting in midsummer, each of these varieties has a compact habit and shorter stature.
