Ultra Violet Butterfly Bush
Long-Blooming, Compact Variety
From late spring into fall, Ultra Violet Butterfly Bush puts on a show-stopping display like no other. Stems shoot up above the foliage, topped with spikes of densely-clustered tiny blossoms. The appearance is one of a vibrant bush, with an abundance of long violet spikes drifting on the breeze above it.
Unlike many butterfly bush varieties that can tend toward being lanky, your Ultra Violet adopts a more compact form, creating a neater appearance for your landscape. Just as its name implies, Ultra Violet Butterfly Bush, Buddleia 'PDSI-1', is also an incredible lure to pollinators, especially butterflies who will blanket it with their fluttering wings.
Your Ultra Violet Butterfly Bush is a deciduous, ornamental shrub that will grow up to 3 feet tall with an equal width. It’s adaptable to a variety of soils and has a compact, rounded shape.
Plant a few of these for a distinctive, short border or use one as a unique container planting on your patio.
Ultra Violet is small enough in stature to fit well at the back of your perennial bed, but big enough to stand alone in your front yard. You’ll also enjoy Ultra Violet indoors when you bring a few of the fabulous flowers inside to fill your house with their vibrant color.
Butterfly Bushes are always a welcomed sight, but many can have trouble maintain their shape, presenting a lanky, unsightly form. Ultra Violet Butterfly Bush has overcome this flaw, providing a compact shape that is as impressive as its marvelous blooms. Find a bit of gardening space for this 3-foot shrub today. You’ll be glad you did!
