Lo & Behold® Blue Chip Jr. Butterfly Bush
Small Shrub with Large Appeal
Blue Chip Jr. Butterfly Bush, Buddleia davidii 'Blue Chip Jr.' has a small stature but incredible blooms. Plant a few along an outbuilding for a decorative hedge, or just one in any spot for a lively focal point that’s sure to enliven even the most drab location.
The outstanding feature of your Blue Chip Junior Butterfly Bush is of course the profusion of fragrant flowers that repeatedly bloom from mid-June and continue re-blooming right up until the first frost. Each long, floral spike consists of a clustered gathering of tiny florets of delicate blue coloring. The oval leaves provide a dressy accent to the flowers, including a silver tint to the vibrant, green shade.
Perhaps best of all, Blue Chip Jr. is (just as the name implies), a smaller version of Blue Chip with a more compact nature. It will fit snugly into many locations in your yard but still perform just as beautifully as its larger relative. Of course another outstanding feature is its irresistible allure to wildlife, including hummingbirds, butterflies and bees that will bring their beauty and delightful nature to your yard (as well as provide their pollination skills).
Blue Chip Jr. Butterfly Bush will grow to 28 inches in height with an equal spread. It has a gentle, rounded nature and compact habit. It’s a fast-growing bush that won’t take long to establish, and won’t demand your time and effort to maintain.
May people admire butterfly bushes but simply don’t have the room for one. Blue Chip Jr. is an opportunity to introduce your yard to all the amazing features of a Butterfly bush without the usual need for space. Try one today and you’ll soon see why the Butterfly Bush is a favorite among gardeners.
