The Velvet Butterfly Bush, scientifically known as Buddleia davidii 'Velvet,' is a unique deciduous shrub characterized by its velvety, deep red-purple flower spikes. This butterfly bush variety is a pollinator's paradise, attracting butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds to its fragrant blooms. It prefers full sun and adds a touch of sophistication to butterfly gardens and borders.

Care Guide

Velvet Butterfly Bush prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Regular watering is crucial, particularly in hot weather, to support vigorous growth and flowering. Pruning can be done to shape the plant and remove spent flower spikes. This butterfly bush variety features deep purple flower spikes that are a favorite of butterflies and pollinators. It adds a touch of elegance to sunny gardens, borders, or butterfly-friendly landscapes. Proper mulching helps with moisture retention.
