Buddleja Davidii 'Royal Red' (Butterfly Bush)

Buddleja Davidii 'Royal Red' (Butterfly Bush)

Super-sized flowers

Clusters of fragrant, dark red-purple flowers, which are very attractive to butterflies, top the gently arching branches from midsummer. This butterfly bush produces some of the largest blooms currently available, and if the shrub is pruned hard each spring, the honey-scented flowerspikes can grow up to an impressive 50cm (20in) long. The mid- to grey-green leaves, will turn butter-yellow in autumn before they fall, and this coupled with the showy flowers, makes it a fine specimen for a sunny position.
