Quick Overview:

The newest addition to the popular MONARCH® Butterfly Bush collection! ‘Prince Charming’ is truly a color break for the Buddleia genus. 10” long flower spikes will stun you with their bright cerise pink color. Compared to ‘Queen of Hearts’, ‘Prince Charming’ is closer to raspberry pink than purple. In mid to late summer, its upright, gumdrop shaped habit is covered with intensely colored flowers and blooms for many weeks.

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.
