Buddleja davidii Harlequin - Buddleia, Butterfly Bush, Plant in 9cm Pot
One of the best known and loved varieties of this hugely popular species of plant. A large shrub, reasonably vigorous grower and great survivor, almost regardless of the conditions and of course it will attract as many butterflies as you have in your area
Very easy to grow, will produce a mass of beautiful and very fragrant flowers from July to October in addition to the stunning variegated foliage. To achieve this long flowering period, with these and other Buddlejas, it is important to prune out dead heads. You should also prune hard each spring soon after new growth begins if you wish to restrict size. This plant can be used in a mixed planting, as a central specimen plant or in a container. If planting in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 12-14 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.For more information please contact at email@example.com .
