Maintenance Notes: 

Prefers well-drained, moist, fertile soils but can tolerate drought once established. Prefers medium moisture. Prune in late winter or early spring. In Northern states, this plant will die back to the ground though the roots are hardy. In the South, cut back as needed. To encourage reblooming, remove old spent blooms. Fertilize in early spring by applying a slow release fertilizer specialized for trees and shrubs. Follow the label for recommended rate of application.

This new butterfly bush is noted for its compact habit and remarkably vivid, rich pink blooms. The distinctive magenta flowers are more vibrant than that of any other buddleia variety.

Developed by Dr. Dennis Werner of the JC Raulston Arboretum.
