Availability: Out of stock

Enjoy prolific magenta flowers on a dwarf shrub when you order the Buzz™ Magenta Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii 'Buzz Magenta') is a dwarf Butterfly Bush with exceptional features! This compact flowering ornamental will amaze you, as it is perfect for smaller yards and tight spaces!

Your Buzz™ series Magenta is a remarkable variety of Butterfly Bush that not only possesses flowers as large as a full-sized shrub, but does so in a dwarf size. Each long, 6-inch spike displays a cluster of delicate magenta florets packed together to create vivid flowering spikes of fragrant beauty!

The amazing floral spikes appear on long branches, reaching up from the mounding shrub to cascade out for an elegant, arching appearance. The prolific flowers begin in early summer and continue on well into early fall for a long-lasting display of dramatic color! Need we mention they are an irresistible allure to your butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees?

Magenta's aromatic elliptic leaves provide the perfect backdrop for the impressive flowers and maintain a lively appearance for your Butterfly Bush even when not in bloom! Deer resistant, heat and sun tolerant, and not backing down from USDA growing zones 5 to 11, Buzz™ Butterfly Bushes take hardiness to the extreme!

Planting and Application:

Gorgeous specimens for any sized garden, these are easy-care and fuss-free enough to use in long rows as backdrops, friendly and care-free property division, en masse on hard-to-mow slopes and eroding hillsides, and in groupings to maximize your Butterfly Bush's impact on your yard! Mix and match with larger Butterfly Bush, or with other Buzz™ like Raspberry, Ivory, and Lavender!

A must-have for the Cut Flower garden and the Pollinator border, these gorgeous bloomers perform as well in the pampered Cottage Garden as they do in the Rock Garden! Buzz™ Magenta is even salt tolerant so you can use it along sidewalks and driveways that get salted in the winter months!

Plant a few Buzz™ Magenta in containers for your sunny patio or front porch. The back pool deck will become a hotspot for everyone to relax and that garden bench will become a divine place to sit and watch butterflies! Pot up in large planters with good drainage and watch the visitors fly in! These are also wonderful for those small spaces that can use a little color but you just don't have the room.

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Plant Buddleia in full sun and well-drained moderately moist soil. Plant in about any type of soil that isn't soggy and top off with a 3-4 inch layer of mulch to retain moisture and insulate the roots. While drought tolerant once established, provide supplemental moisture during trying times to keep the blooms returning! Deadhead as the flowers fade to encourage plenty of rebloom.

These shrubs can act as woody flowering ornaments in warm climates, and in the warmest of their growing zone range do appreciate some afternoon shade. However, in colder climates, Buddleia acts as an herbaceous perennial and can die back to the ground in the winter. In very early spring, before you see new growth, prune the entire plant near the ground to ensure an even new flush of growth each year.

Buzz™ Magenta is a low-maintenance shrub and overall hardy! Even though it's a magnet for pollinators, other wildlife (such as deer), tend to leave it alone.

  • Full Sun & Afternoon Shade In Hot Climates
  • Well-Drained Soil
  • Moderate Moisture & Fertility
  • Prune to Ground Early Spring
  • Salt-Resistant, Deer Resistant & Fast Growth Rate

For lovely flowers on a smaller stature shrub, you can't go wrong with Buzz™ Magenta Butterfly Bush. This fast-growing, ornamental shrub is high-performing and brings the magic of butterflies to your yard each year. It's a must-have and available at Nature Hills Nursery!
