Buddleja 'Argus Velvet' (Large Plant)

Buddleia, Butterfly Bush

Hardy Shrub

This new cultivar of Butterfly Bush bears graceful, arching panicles of mauve purple flowers from June to September. The slender blooms of Buddleja 'Argus Velvet' are always popular with pollinating insects, making this a great choice for wildlife gardens. Unlike many of its predecessors, Buddleja 'Argus Velvet' is virtually sterile so it won't seed about your garden. This elegant deciduous shrub is ideal for sunny borders where it will form a manageable bush with a rounded, open habit. Height and spread: 150cm (59").
