Buddelia davidii x 'Adonis Blue'

Buddle-ia: after Adam Buddle, English botanist. Butterfly bush is fragrant, colorful, and attracts butterflies. Bold, long-blooming flowers make this plant a garden favorite. Many colors are available; can reach height and width up to 4-8'. Not a true blue (few flowers are), Adonis Blue is actually a deep, dark purple that can look blue in the right light. Its compact growth makes this new variety one of the best. *Deer Resistant*
