Buddleja 'Buzz Sky Blue' is a small and compact shrub with profuse plumes of mauve flowers for most of the year, which will attract masses of butterflies to the garden. It is a small version of the popular and hardy Buddleja, and will only grow to around a metre high and wide. A great waterwise and easy care plant, needing only a trim to remove dead flowers, and a handful of general purpose fertiliser in spring and summer. Frost and dry tolerant. Great for containers, massed planting and as a feature shrub. Good for most soil types, and in full sun to part shade.
