Adonis Blue Butterfly Bush
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.
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.
