Buddleja 'Blue Chip'
Butterfly Bush - 3 litres
Buddleia 'Blue Chip' (Lo and Behold Series) is one in a series of dwarf varieties of Butterfly bush suitable for patio containers and borders where a regular variety would be too large. Lavender-blue scented flowers, highly attractive to butterflies and bees, open from July to September on a bush only 80cm (32in) high and wide! The compact size makes dead heading easy, keeping the plant tidy and prolonging flowering.
Easy to grow in any well-drained soil, in sun. Prune hard back in March or April. Protect plants grown in containers over winter by insulating the pots or placing in a frost-free place.
Bee and butterfly friendly.
