Buddleia davidii 'Black Knight'

Buddleia davidii (Black Knight Butterfly Bush)

Black Knight Butterfly Bush

Butterfly Bush are a wonderful addition to your summer garden. Black Knight becomes covered in 6-8" long panicles of very deep violet to dark purple. A very vigorous grower.A dense canopy of foliage and a generous flower display combine to make Butterflybush a popular item in many southern landscapes. The plant is probably most popular because flowers attract many different butterflies and bees. It is one of the best plants for this purpose. These plants are considered to resist browsing by deer.
Plants become a tangled, woody mess after a couple of years and will need to be cut back every now and then, but they respond well to yearly cutting to the ground to stimulate fresh growth. Buddleia is grown as a herbaceous perennial as far north as hardiness zone 5.
