Funky Fuchsia™ Butterfly Bush
Reddish pink flowers are like catnip to butterflies and hummingbirds!
Turn any garden into a butterfly garden! Funky Fuchsia Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii) is a 6 to 8 foot tall shrub covered in huge (six to ten inches long!) spikes of reddish-pink flowers that are a magnet to butterflies and hummingbirds. The flowers are strikingly colored and come in droves, ensuring that you will have plenty of great cuts for inside as well as plenty of food for butterflies and hummingbirds outside.
Take care to deadhead this beauty and you will have flowers well into autumn. Once winter hits, Funky Fuchsia will die back to the ground in cold winter places. In warmer climates, prune it back in spring to 12 inches to rejuvenate the entire plant.
Like all butterfly bushes, Funky Fuchsia does best in full sun – otherwise it will get leggy and sparse. It doesn’t like wet feet, either so give it a place in your garden with good drainage.
Funky Fuchsia flowers are such a unique color. Plant it with other butterfly attracting plants in shades of yellows and oranges or lavenders and blues.
Funky Fuchsia will grow quickly to fill in bare spots in your foundation plantings, borders and beds. They will reach their full height every year before you can blink. Order yours today and enjoy the show!
