Buddlea Davidii

This is a fast-growing shrub that produces masses of fragrant flower clusters attractive to butterflies, moths and hummingbirds. Plants need full sun or light shade to bloom profusely. Pinch out the tips of new top growth to promote a more compact shrub, and remove old flowers to encourage new blooms.

I love these plants when I see them full of blooms and surrounded by butterflies and hummingbirds. But when I have to deadhead all those spent blooms to keep the blooms coming then they are not so attractive. why do I keep buying them? Grin.
