'Grand Cascade' Butterfly Bush is a statement-making breakthrough in Buddleia with massive panicles nearly 4” wide and 12” long with a draping, cascading habit. The softly-scented lavender flowers begin blooming in mid-summer, when many other plants have passed, drawing bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Butterfly Bushes are deer resistant and perfect for a sunny, well-drained border. A game-changing shrub. (Buddleia)

There are few shrubs so beloved to pollinators as Buddleia, or Butterfly Bush. Its tiny, funnel-shaped blooms are held in large, colorful panicles that are absolutely covered in butterflies and bees from mid-summer through to early fall. While not a North American native plant, the silver-green foliage stands out proudly against other late summer native staples like Magnus Echinacea or colorful Garden Phlox, and creates a wonderful environment for some of our most beloved pollinators. Butterfly Bushes are tolerant of partial shade, but grow and flower best in sunny sites with well-draining, average soils.  They bloom on new wood, so cut the woody stems down within 12” of the soil line in early spring to make way for new growth.
