What's better than one? Two. And what's better than two? Three! Three plants in one pot!

So imagine our delight when the makers of Butterfly Magic™ Butterfly Bush combo (Buddleia davidii 'Black Knight', Buddleia davidii 'Pink Delight', Buddleia davidii 'White Profusion') chose three of the most popular Butterfly Bushes and grew them all in one container!

That's right! When you order Butterfly Magic™, you're actually getting three different plants that have come together to create a stunning collection of purples, pinks, and whites! What more could you ask for?

Let's break it down, this deciduous flowering bush comes to life in the spring with a flush of fantastic green foliage that is wonderfully aromatic on its own. This by itself makes Butterfly Magic™ a go-to for gardeners! Of course, who buys a Butterfly Bush for the foliage? However, it does make a gorgeous background for the flowers to come.

Each summer, this bush will bloom a plethora of pretty pointed flowering spikes packed full of fragrant little florets. Blooming in shades of pink, purple, and white so you'll never have to pick just one color again! Talk about a dream come true!

Black Knight Butterfly Bush is a dramatically dark purple flowering Buddleia, while Pink Delight is a vivid pink, and White Profusion is a brilliant white!

As if the colors themselves weren't enough, these flower spikes are delightfully fragrant and a highly sought-after nectar resource for butterflies! That won't stop you from snagging a few off the bush for yourself and bringing them inside to brighten up a dining room or kitchen counter. (Butterfly Magic™ will simply grow more flowers until frost!)

True to its name, Butterfly Magic™ will attract butterflies like a magnet, or like...magic! Forgive the pun because the number of butterflies, Hummingbirds, and other beneficial pollinators you'll have in your garden will be no laughing matter!

This upright-growing deciduous shrub is a pretty fast-growing plant. So you won't have to wait long at all to experience its full flower power! Gardening in a colder climate that USDA hardiness zones 5 to 8? Butterfly Magic™ simply acts more like an herbaceous perennial and dies back to the ground in the winter but returns in all its glory each spring!

Planting and Application:

Do you love this bush but have absolutely no idea how to use it or where it should go for maximum style? Hey, no problem. Nature Hills has you covered!

Three colors in one is a great way to include different looks without spending the space on three different plants! Shrubs like Butterfly Magic™ work in a variety of ways and have a perfect spot in just about any type of sun garden! Check out these ideas:

The triple combo of flower colors means Butterfly Magic™ is a must-have garden focal point or specimen feature in a front lawn berm! Pair this beauty with other Butterfly Bush combos like Perfecta Trifecta or Perfect Pastels Butterfly Bushes! Groupings of these gorgeous plants will always attract attention and pollinators galore. Neighbors will be stopping and staring in wonder!

You can also use these easy-care and low-maintenance shrubs in rows and drifts to maximize their easy-going nature to your benefit! Try a few as a back-of-the-border planting in a Cottage Garden or full sun Perennial border, or lining a sunny pathway!

These are must-haves in the Cut flower garden, the Pollinator border, and throughout mixed shrub borders for long-lasting summer-to-fall-color and nectar resources! Not only will it add flair in the later summer months, but even when it isn't in bloom the green will make a stunning backdrop for other plants! Just imagine the combination of Butterfly Bushes and Roses!

Do you have a particularly hot and sunny spot in your garden that you just aren't sure what to do with? Add some flowers that attract butterflies with Butterfly Magic™! Once established, Buddleia are actually great Xeriscaping plants and thrive in Rock Gardens too!

You can also use this in mass plantings if you've got more space to cover. Imagine how a field of pink, white and purple flowers will look. Pretty...magical if you ask us! If you've already got a yard full of trees and shrubs fear not. Butterfly Magic™ won't end up blending in. It'll simply add to the beauty already planted!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Good news for your self-proclaimed brown-thumbed gardeners. Butterfly bushes are relatively easy to grow. Especially when you follow these simple instructions:

When picking out a planting site, look for somewhere in full sun with well-drained soil. This will ensure your shrub is happy off the bat! You'll want to water well during the first year to help it get established. Then after that go ahead and cut back on the watering to a normal amount. Mulching around the root system will help regulate temperatures and conserve water.

Buddleia is a woody shrub in warmer areas but acts much more like Perennials in colder climates. You'll want to cut back all stems in late winter before the growing season starts. This helps the plant develop new fresh growth from down low. Plus, if you deadhead the shrub throughout its blooming season, it'll encourage the plant to produce new flowers and continue blooming.

The cherry on top is that Butterfly Magic™ is often left alone by deer and other wildlife. So your occasional wandering deer will more than likely leave this shrub be!

  • Full Sun Shrub/Perennial
  • Must Have Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate to Low Moisture Needs Once Established
  • Appreciates Mulch & Deadheading
  • Easy to Care For & Deer Resistant

This unique plant is shipped as a grouping of three different colors all grown together, but all three colors may not persist if all three are not cut back each spring allowing all an equal start in the spring.

With so many amazing qualities, you'll want two or three of these shrubs for your garden! Order Butterfly Magic™ Butterfly Bushes to finish your various landscaping projects today!
