Profusion of Purple Red Spikes

The Royal Red Butterfly Bush, Buddleia davidii 'Royal Red', is not quite a true red color, but purple-red flowers are borne on this beautiful upright growing shrub.

The Royal Red Butterfly Bush is a vigorous growing shrub that boasts purple -red flowers from mid-summer and is a butterfly magnet. This shrub flowers summer and fall and is easy to grow in full sun. It will mature to 4'-6' with an equal spread.

With a name like Butterfly Bush you might expect a plant to be attractive to butterflies. In fact, it's more than attractive; it's a magnet for all the butterflies that pass through your garden seeking nectar.

This deciduous shrub blooms mid-summer to early fall if deadheaded regularly.  Butterflies and bees will flock to the honey-scented blossoms, whose dilute nectar is sweetest in midday sun.

Plant the Royal Red Butterfly Bush near a path or patio and the shrub will provide a delightful fragrance for you, too. It's generally pest-free.

This plant blooms on new growth and should be pruned back to the ground in spring.
