Buddleia Prince Charming
Common name: Butterfly bush 'Butterfly Bush'
Beautiful bright cerise pink 10" flowers from July through September.
A vigorous multi-stem plant for the perennial border.
Good cut flower, attractive to butterflies.
Easy to grow and loves full sun.
It flowers on new growth and therefore is best to cut back all the old wood to about 12" in the spring. This will create a more compact plant.
Buddleias prefer moist well-drained soil with full sun.
Adding some lime to the soil will help to increase growth.
Exposure: Full sun
