More Information

Description Good golly, it's easy to see why Miss Molly butterfly bush (Buddleia) is the queen of the summer garden! Intensely saturated and fragrant panicles explode with flowers, enticing butterflies and hummingbirds. Blooms continue to appear all through summer, even without deadheading. Its compact, mounding habit stays neat and tidy in the landscape, making it perfect for any space. This Proven Winners ColorChoice Shrub is carefree and easy to grow. It thrives in hot climates and can withstand heat and mild drought. Plus, you can add this to your garden guilt-free, knowing it's non-invasive and has sterile seeds! Try planting it as a specimen, in pollinator gardens, or as a low hedge. Details Botanical name: Buddleia 'Miss Molly'
Patent #: USPP 23,425
Common name: Butterfly bush
Zone: 5 - 9
Sun exposure: Sun (> 6 hours sun)
Height x width: 4-5' x 5-6'
Flower color: Red
Foliage color: Green

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 the soil.
Light: Sun (> 6 hours sun).
Water: Low to average watering; soil can even be dry once established. Butterfly bush does not tolerate wet conditions for any period.
Spacing: 5-6 feet
Fertilizing: Little needed; if desired, apply a granular rose or garden fertilizer in early spring.
Winterizing: In fall, plants can be trimmed lightly, but save major pruning for spring. Do not fertilize in fall, and 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 emerged. 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.

Terrible

I ordered 3 butterfly bushes because they could withstand the Florida heat. Instead I got 3 azalea bushes that arrived pretty beaten and very tiny. They have all died. I had gotten them for my sister for her birthday.

Miss Molly color

Color is not red. It is a dab pinkish blend with lavender, drably color. On the web this is stated: "Images shown may be of mature plants.". Very disappointed. The supplier was Proven Winners.
