Buddleia Pink Delight Description

Butterfly Bush is a delightful drought proof fast growing shrub. They are easy to grow with an exceptionally long bloom period. The gray-green foliage forms a nice rounded habit. Pink Delight boasts up to 12" long true pink fragrant flowers that dangle in a delightful manner non-stop mid-summer thru first frost providing an almost endless supply of nectar for butterflies. Use as a specimen in the perennial border, or create a colorful long lasting hedge.Butterfly Bush will thrive in average to poor soil. Grows 5-7 feet tall. Extremely easy care, just cut back old wood to about 12" in the spring. Late dormancy breakers, we often don't see them emerge in spring until late May here in Michigan.

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 to 4 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 1/3 its height 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.
