Buddleia davidii 'Black Knight'

 

Black Knight Butterfly Bush is a fast grower for your sunny garden. This sturdy stemmed plant will grow 6' to 8' in height making it a great screening plant. It's flower color can seem so dark, it almost looks black in the right lighting. The Hummingbirds and butterflies love the honey fragrance produced by this beauty! All of our butterfly bushes love being watered during the summer so get you hose ready!

New crop of Black Knight will be available to ship on July 13, the crop will be limited to 100 units. At that time we will also be offering Black Knight Buddleia and another one called Evil Ways Buddleia. Thanks, Joseph.

A very fast growing butterfly bush. Black Knight loves water during the summer bloom time, with periodic trimming they re-blooms till October. As the plant matures in the landscape, the flowers grow larger and more abundant.

This plant loves water and can hadle wetland areas. Water is especially important during flowering season as it flowers best with lots and lots of water.
