Butterfly Bush - Royal Red

Profusion of Purple Red Spikes


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


It 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 it 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.


Zones 5-9.


*Spikes of Red Purple Flowers


*Blooms Summer through Fall


*Attracts Butterflies and Hummingbirds

Flower color Review by Tara A
Rating
To me the flower color should be called royal purple-red. I still love the color but the purple seems to over shadow the red.
great job Review by Green with envy

Arrived very healthy and packed well.
Not as intense of color as pictured, grows well however Review by Kris
Rating
The color of this plant is definitely more bright lilac than deep magenta as pictured. It grows well, but I have two - one in full sun from morning to evening and one in just afternoon sun, and the one with just afternoon sun is faring much better. The all-day sun one has rust-like spots on the leaves, is shorter and less lush than the other. It is also NOT a show-stopper - a backyard garden space filler would be a much more appropriate use for this plant.
