Growing Calendar for Buddleja Buzz Magenta 3L Potted Shrub
Delivery: Early June to Early December
Buddleja Buzz Magenta (buddleia, butterfly bush) is a lovely rich-coloured variety bred to create compact, flower-rich yet dwarf stems so the overall plant reaches 1.2m (4ft). This is excellent news for those that enjoy container gardening and/or have a limited amount of space. They are fantastic in pots on balconies too, even if you have no garden.
The mid-to-late summer blooms attract a wealth of butterflies; beautiful beneficial pollinators that increase the bio-diversity and wildlife activity in your garden.
This is an easy-prune perennial plant; all you need do is prune stems each March to about 5cm (2in) from the base of the plant. Young stems shoot up to just over a metre (3ft) high flowering from mid-summer on these first-year stems. Keeping the stems intact over winter provides structural interest and perches for garden birds.
When you prune Buzz Magenta in early-spring add a layer of mulch or bulky compost around the base of the plant to provide it with plentiful nutrients before it puts up its fresh flush of stems.
