Soil: Average, medium moisture, well-drained soils. Not too fussy about PH of soil.
Light: Full sun -- Becomes weedy and sparse with diminished flowering performance if not grown in full sun.
Water: Average moisture -- Does poorly in wet conditions.
Spacing: 3.00 to 4.00 feet
Fertilizing: Light scattering of slow release fertilizer (such as Osmocote) in mid-spring is sufficient.
Winterizing: In colder regions, this plant will often die to the ground in winter and therefore is often grown therein in the manner of an herbaceous perennial. Even if plants do not die to the ground in winter, they often grow more vigorously, produce superior flowers and maintain better shape if cut back to around 12"-15" in late winter each year. Buddleias tend to break dormancy late in the spring, so don't worry if you don't see anything happening with them when your other shrubs start to leaf-out.
Maintenance & Pruning: Prompt removal of spent flower spikes during the growing season will usually encourage continued bloom until frost. Cut back to around 12"-15" in late winter, or early spring each year.
