You will find this variety welcome in your sunny border because of its shorter stature and earlier blooming. 17 – 20cm orchid purple flowers appear above a neat mound of foliage. This free flowering variety will produce masses of flower power. The low, rounded, ball-shaped habit has medium green foliage.
Buddleja davidii Humdinger Orchid Annie
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 MONARCHÂ® Collection. In addition to blooming starting in midsummer, each of these varieties has a compact habit and shorter stature.
