Buddleia davidii 'Pink Delight'

Buddleia davidii (Pink Delight Butterflybush)

Pink Delight Butterflybush

A dutch introduction with true pink flowers that are fragrant, showy and suitable for cut flowers. Panicles are 6-12" long with gray green leaves and a compact growth habit. This plant tolerates some drought and occasional wetness. This plant will grow in dry to occasionally wet soil. Suitable soil is well-drained/loamy, sandy or clay. The pH preference is an acidic to alkaline (less than 6.8 to more than 7.7) soil. 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 grows best if cut back to the ground annually.
