Buddleja davidii 'Black Knight'

Butterfly bush 'Black Knight'

Price: €8.95

As the name suggests, butterflybushes are adored by pollinating insects, especially butterflies. The dark purple, sweetly scented flowers are held in cone shaped flowerheads on arching branches up to 10ft tall, among grey-green leaves. Ideal for anyone who wants to bring some wildlife into their garden, especially because it is a late summer variety when not a lot of other pollination sources are available. It will self-seed, so if you do not want this, cut off flowerheads as soon as they finish flowering. Cut back hard in early spring to control its size, shape and to encourage flowering. It loves a dry soil in full sun. Flowers June-September. 2L pot. Only available in our Dunboyne shop. Although generally in stock, they may be sold out at the time of your visit.
