The Flutterby Petite Butterfly Bush (Buddleia x 'Flutterby Petite') is a compact, low-maintenance, and colorful addition to any garden. This dwarf hybrid of the popular butterfly bush (Buddleia davidii) was specifically bred for its smaller size and improved characteristics, making it an excellent choice for small gardens, mixed borders, and containers.
The Flutterby Petite Butterfly Bush is a deciduous shrub with a compact, rounded growth habit, reaching a height and width of only 2 to 3 feet. It is well-suited for small spaces and urban gardens, where its larger counterparts may be too big to fit. This versatile shrub thrives in USDA hardiness zones 5-9, preferring full sun and well-drained soil.
One of the most appealing features of the Flutterby Petite Butterfly Bush is its low-maintenance nature. It is drought-tolerant, deer-resistant, and non-invasive, unlike some other Buddleia species. Additionally, it requires minimal pruning to maintain its tidy shape and promote vigorous growth.
The Flutterby Petite Butterfly Bush is known for its abundant, fragrant, and colorful flowers. The blooms appear in dense, cone-shaped clusters (panicles) at the tips of the branches from early summer until the first frost. The flowers come in various colors, including shades of pink, purple, blue, and white, depending on the cultivar.
The nectar-rich flowers are highly attractive to butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees, making this shrub an excellent addition to a pollinator-friendly garden. The blooms not only add visual interest and fragrance to the garden but also provide a valuable food source for beneficial insects.
To encourage continuous blooming throughout the season, it is recommended to deadhead the spent flowers, which will stimulate the production of new flower buds.
The Flutterby Petite Butterfly Bush features attractive foliage that complements its stunning blooms. The leaves are narrow, elongated, and grayish-green, providing a pleasant backdrop for the vibrant flower panicles. The foliage remains lush and healthy throughout the growing season, adding texture and visual interest even when the plant is not in bloom.
