Like the other Lo & Behold buddleia,  'Lilac Chip' is a real charmer! Dwarf, and seedless, it reblooms until frost without deadheading.  'Lilac Chip' has soft, lavender-pink flowers and is more compact than 'Blue Chip'.  It produces abundant, fragrant, soft lavender flowers from mid-summer until frost.

  • I have 3 that are a couple years old. Cut them to the ground in early spring and enjoy! Nothing short of amazing. Zone 5b.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • Extremely disappointed. Was beautiful for the first summer. Never grew back. Was in a perfect sunny location. Also disappointed I can't read others comments.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
