Just tuck this long-blooming beauty in a sunny spot and enjoy the show. Details Botanical name: Buddleia x 'SMNBDL'
Patent #: USPP 30,236
Common name: Butterfly bush
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Full sun (6+ hours sun)
Height x width: 2' x 2'
Flower color: Lavender Purple
Foliage color: Green
Season of Interest: Summer-fall
Uses: Accent, Border, Container gardening, Cottage gardening, Massing, Small spaces.
How To Grow Soil: Butterfly bushes require very well-drained, even dry, soils. Do not amend or add anything to the soil at planting time, as this can cause serious drainage problems. In clay soil, plant butterfly bush, so they are slightly above, rather than even with, the soil.
Light: Full sun - at least six hours of bright sun each day is necessary for healthy plants and abundant blooms.
Water: Low to average watering; soil can even be dry once established. Butterfly bush does not tolerate wet conditions for any period of time.
Spacing: 3 to 4 feet
Fertilizing: Little needed; if desired, apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring. Do not fertilize in fall.
Winterizing: In fall, plants can be trimmed lightly if desired but save major pruning for spring. If mulching, do not apply heavily at the base of the plant.
Maintenance & Pruning: Butterfly bushes are best pruned in spring, once the new growth has begun to emerge. At that point, cut just above where big, healthy buds appear. Give butterfly bushes plenty of time to emerge in spring, especially in colder climates - this may take several weeks, even if other plants in your yard are already leafing out.

Great little plant

I really appreciated your instructions that accompanied the Pugsters. I read it carefully and followed the suggestions and -voila!- they bloomed and are doing very well. Plants arrived in good condition and are establishing their roots before the frost sets in. Can't wait to see them pop next spring!

Excellent plants and customer service

I ordered two of these Butterfly Bushes. When they arrived one looked ok, but the other one nearly all the leaves had wilted and fallen off. I emailed the company and they quickly. After a few days of watching the plant to see if would recover, but it died completely. They quickly sent a replacement (two actually) the replacements were in excellent condition and I have plants now that are flourishing.
This is one of three orders I have placed with Great Garden Plants over the past few months, my other two orders were for six plants each, arrived in excellent condition and are also doing fantastic. The customer service is excellent and matches the quality of the product.

QUALITY IS SURPERB

Amazing quality and very well packaged. You can't realize the quality of this plant unless you have received very poor quality. Ordered five from a dealer on ETSY and they can't compare to this plant, one was 2 1/2 inches tall which should have been a Pugster Amethyst but has bloomed twice and all white. All five plants had a fungus and required several treatments with a fungicide but now all clear. This plant has 5 buds ready to bloom and extremely healthy. Wilted a little from the trip but will improve as I have all four plants that I received in a shaded area. Will order from this company many times. THANKS

Smaller than expected, but still nice!

I'll be curious to see if they reach the 2' x 2' that the website indicates. They weren't much over 6" tall when we planted them. They did each yield ONE branch with SMALL purple flowers. But nothing outstanding. Hopefully, next summer they will flourish and produce more flowers.
