Buddleja davidii
'Ellen's Blue'

Buddleja davidii Ellens Blue

At only 5-6' tall & 4' across, this shorter-statured "Butterfly Bush" is easier to place in most folk's gardens than the usual larger varieties. Originating from a chance seedling in Ellen Hornig's garden (owner of the now closed Seneca Hill Nursery), this highly desirable butterfly and hummingbird favorite is very long blooming - from June to October - furnishing a seemingly endless supply of fruity scented, rich violet-blue spikes studded with bright orange eyes. Use it to round out a corner of your garden, fill a large blank space along a fence, or just as a cut flower producing machine! Nice silvery, slender foliage. A cinch to grow, just provide decently draining soil, an annual side-dress of compost & cut back severely in late Fall.
