#ProPlantTips for Care

With a mounded form, the compact Buzz Sky Blue is easy to grow and quite hardy. Plant it in full sun, where it will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.

Buddleias do best in well-drained soil. They won't tolerate wet roots. Use containers or elevate the planting bed, if your soil drains slowly.

You'll enjoy the largest flower display if you can deadhead the spent blooms. We like to invest in a cute pair of small garden snips, and call it "me time" out in your garden. It takes about 3 minutes, and gives you a chance to enjoy your plant up close and personal.

More flowers? You bet, that's worth it.

In addition to full sun, provide a medium amount of water on a regular basis, so it can grow to its fullest potential. Don't worry about the occasional vacation. These durable plants are waterwise.

Deer don't prefer the taste, so they are rarely damaged. a great choice as an addition to your garden border.

Buddleia as a species may grow a bit too well in certain areas. Don't fear! We protect your local ecosystem with a software tool called Plant Sentry™. It helps Nature Hills follow all local, state and federal regulations for plants that can become invasive.

If we can ship this into your area, you'll adore your new Buzz Sky Blue Butterfly Bush. So will all your local pollinators! Get your color fix, order today.
