Quick Overview:

Great things come in small packages. Introducing BUZZ Buddleja, an exciting dwarf Butterfly Bush series. At 1/3 the size of standard varieties, BUZZ Buddleja enjoy restrained yet vigorous growth, yet maintain the elegance and large, shapely flowers of the standard types.  ‘Buzz Sky Blue’ is a very compact buddleja that is ideal for growing in small garden areas or patio containers. In the garden, it will typically grow to 3′ tall, but in a container will only reach 2′ tall. Sky blue flowers in spike-like terminal and axillary clusters bloom from June to frost. Flowers are mildly fragrant, and, as the common name suggests, very attractive to butterflies. Willowy, elliptic leaves with serrate margins are medium green

Description

Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Becomes weedy and sparse with diminished flowering performance if not grown in full sun. Does poorly in wet conditions. In USDA Zones 5 and 6, this plant will often die to the ground in winter and therefore is often grown therein in the manner of an herbaceous perennial. Even if plants do not die to the ground in winter, they often grow more vigorously, produce superior flowers and maintain better shape if cut close to the ground in late winter each year. Prompt removal of spent flower spikes during the growing season will usually encourage continued bloom until frost.
