I planted this spring of 2019. It is blooming well and smells like the classic butterfly bush. Mine is nearly 4' tall and wide. I guess it's happy. :)

Lo & Behold® 'Purple Haze' is a different duck than all the other Lo & Behold Buddleia. Developed by Denny Werner of NCSU, this hybrid selection is a low, wide-spreading variety that makes it a great selection for use as a ground cover or in a decorative container. Like all of the Lo & Behold® series, we had to test it for sterility. This is a sterile variety that does not produce unwanted seedlings. It passed the test and can now be sold in Oregon where other Buddleia are banned.
A low spreading charmer of a butterfly bush, Lo & Behold 'Purple Haze' has uniquely horizontal branches that produce an abundance of fragrant dark purple-blue flowers. The flowers radiate outward and downward like a pinwheel, and are continuous from mid summer to frost. It makes a great mass planting or foundation planting, or can be incorporated into perennial gardens and mixed borders.Fun Facts:
This non-invasive variety is approved for sale in Oregon and Washington, though it will be called a "summer lilac" instead of a "butterfly bush."Lo & Behold® 'Purple Haze' Buddleia x USPP 24,514, Can 4,447

This is my favorite butterfly bush. Amazing color and lots of re-blooms. Always has a butterfly on it. They cant resist it :).Corey, North Carolina, United States, 4 years ago
We planted ours in May, it's October & it has already tripled in size. We notice constant blooms on it which is lovely to see as it really does attract butterflies!Kerry Campbell, Texas, United States, 6 years ago
Easy to plant. Blooms are constant! Love this plant. Went out and bought 4 more!JoAnn Woodward, New Jersey, United States, 8 years ago
Planted 5 (2 two years ago, 3 more last year), and only 2 came back this spring. They are quite attractive while blooming, and bloom for a long period, attracting many butterflies. But apparently not reliable.Donna Piepho, Missouri, United States, 8 years ago
This shrub was perfect in the border garden. It kept producing flowers without deadheading and they bloomed a long time.Jeanne, New York, United States, 11 years ago
I purchased one, loved the size of it and was overwhelmed by all the blooms that I went back and purchased two more.Beverly Paff, Arkansas, United States, 11 years ago
