Humdinger® Little Nugget Butterfly Bush - Buddleia - Compact - Gallon Pot
Gift wrapping Options available
Blooming a few weeks earlier than typical Buddleia, the 5-6” magenta-purple fragrant spikes deepen to blue-purple. Chartreuse foliage with luminous yellow highlights is a perfect backdrop to the sparkling flowers. Compact, wide profile. Very late to break dormancy in spring. May die back to ground in northern climates. Blooms on new wood. Heavy pruning is not needed, but may be trimmed in spring after new growth emerges, if desired. Grow in full sun with well-drained soil.
From the Humdinger® Collection, aptly named, as Buddleia Little Nugget is striking and extraordinary. Glorious summer color on fast-growing plants entrance butterflies and hummingbirds. This woody ornamental shrub does not wake up until late spring, but the summer show is well worth the wait. Butterfly Bushes are quite drought tolerant once established in the landscape.
The word “humdinger” is defined as “something that is very impressive or exciting.” That word definitely applies to this new collection of Buddleia! This collection features five new varieties of Butterfly Bush, each blooming a few weeks earlier than the members of the MONARCH® Collection. In addition to blooming starting in midsummer, each of these varieties has a compact habit and shorter stature.
