Ultra Violet™ Buddleia

Buddleia 'PDSI-1'

This exciting buddleia grows compactly into an attractive rounded shape, unlike other butterfly bushes that often become tall and lanky. Its violet blooms are a beacon for butterflies and honeybees, and Ultra Violet reblooms well from late spring into fall.
