Buddleia 'Grand Cascade' - Butterfly Bush
Think all Buddleia look the same? Think again! Unlike the typical Butterfly Bush, the panicles on this flowering shrub cascade downward, similar to the look of weeping willow or a bridalwreath spirea. Light lavender purple flower panicles are enormous at 12-14" long and 4" thick. They're nearly the size of your head!
Butterfly Bushes have certainly earned their place in the garden over the years, and its easy to see why. Just when we need a breath of fresh air in the late summer heat, they happily burst into bloom. At a time when many other plants are already spent, buddleias are just beginning their show. Their passive coloring and texture makes a wonderful backdrop for perennials, and you'll love the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds that flock to their honey-scented blossoms.
This one has survived without mulch in my gardens for the last 2 years! Seems hardier than older cultivars and is SUPER impressive in bloom size. Technically a shrub but it is a die-back shrub here, coming from the ground every year like a perennial.
Available in gallon pots after 4/20.
