Buddleja davidii

Common name butterfly bush
Family scrophulariaceae
Life cycle shrub

We had a butterfly bush early on in our garden's development. It was set among a bunch of shrubs at the back of our yard, and I think it eventually expired because it was being shaded by the other shrubs as well as the encroaching spruces. We won't let that happen to our newest butterfly bush, a clone of the 'Driveway' specimen at Point Phillip Perennials. I admired its myriad of blossoms, with dozens of butterflies feasting at the same time, one day in early September, and was hooked. I had to wait till the following spring for my own plant, but it is now in a bright area of the back yard, just waiting to develop the same butterfly magnet power!

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: left fence border
