Buddleia White Profusion * White Butterfly Bush

Buddleia White Profusion is the biggest of the Butterfly Bushes that I have seen, sometimes approaching 12' or more. The Butterfly bushes can be pruned very hard (I think of it as simulating winter) and the White Butterfly Bush responds well to this treatment. If Buddleia White Profusion does not get pruned the plants will get quite large and rather twiggy by their third season. I have grown great specimens in a winter quagmire as well as with virtually no summer water proving their garden adaptability. The Buddleia White Profusion flowers are very fragrant, some say they are the most fragrant, no argument from me. Buddleia White Profusion plants can be kept blooming by deadheading or cutting the spent flowers. This can become quite a task on a 10+ foot bush. Unfortunately the flowers do not readily drop on their own.

Butterfly . . . is a common name that carries a great deal of popularity. It can be properly applied to several plants including Clerodendrum ugandense, Asclepias tuberosa and any of the rest of the Buddleia's. I am sure that this list of plants bearing the butterfly name is nowhere near complete.

Buddleia White Profusion is a nectar source for the Monarch, Gulf Fritillary, Western Tiger Swallowtail, Red Admiral, Mournful Duskywing, and Umber Skipper Butterfly and is a great choice for a butterfly or hummingbird garden in a hot Summer climate.
