Buddleja davidii 'Royal Red'

 

This tall butterfly bush would be perfect for mixing with the Black Knight butterfly bush, which grows to the same height and width, as well as the Kaleidoscope Bicolor butterfly bush. This sun lover attracts both hummingbirds and butterflies, for a wondrous show during the summer. Keep your eyes peeled on this fast grower, and enjoy the parfum!

A very fast growing butterfly bush. Royal Red loves water during the summer bloom time, with periodic trimming they re-blooms till October. As the plant matures in the landscape, flowers become larger and brighter in their color.

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.
