PLEASE NOTE: English Butterfly™ Peacock™ Buddleia is restricted and cannot be shipped to the state(s) of OR or WA.
Finally, colorful buddleia varieties that wont crowd their neighbors! Roughly a third the size of other butterfly bush varieties, the English Butterfly Series plants are extra bushy and loaded with colorful flowers. Peacock has rich pink blooms, and the largest blooms among the series.
The compact size of these new cultivars is perfect for smaller gardens and the mixed border. They can also be used as a container plant in milder climates.
Cold, wet winters can be really hard on buddleia, so here are a few tips to help your buddleia thrive in your garden:
1. Make sure the soil is well-drained. That place where the plow truck dumps snow in the winter? Not a good idea.
2. Full sun. That's at least 6 hours. No cheating.
3. Plant early in the season. This gives the plants all summer and fall to establish. Fall planting can be chancy in northern regions.
4. Wait until it leafs out in spring before pruning. In some years you may have to prune it back to the ground. After milder winters, maybe not so much. Avoid fall pruning.English Butterfly™ Peacock™ Buddleia davidii 'Peakeep'

Was disappointed with the color of the blooms. I particularly wanted Peacock as it was advertised as a "pink". In color, it appears to be more typical of the common buddleias I have in my garden.J SelfArkansasUnited States8 years ago
