First Editions Psychedelic Sky Butterfly Bush
Psychedelic Sky Butterfly Bush will turn any garden into a haven for butterflies and hummingbirds! First Editions® Psychedelic Sky™ Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii ‘PIIBD-III’ PP 26,306) is a shrub covered in huge (six to ten inches long!) spikes of fragrant clear blue flowers that are an instant draw to butterflies and hummingbirds. The flowers are strikingly colored and come in droves, ensuring that you will have plenty of great cuts for inside as well as plenty of food for butterflies and hummingbirds outside.
Take care to deadhead this beauty and you will have flowers well into autumn. Once winter hits, Psychedelic Sky will die back to the ground in cold winter places. In warmer climates, prune it back in spring to 12 inches to rejuvenate the entire plant.
Like all butterfly bushes, Psychedelic Sky does best in full sun – otherwise it will get leggy and sparse. It doesn’t like wet feet, either so give it a place in your garden with good drainage.
Psychedelic Sky flowers are a fresh color in buddleais. Plant it with other butterfly attracting plants in shades of yellows, oranges and reds or lavenders and whites.
Psychedelic Sky will grow quickly to fill in bare spots in your foundation plantings, borders and beds and they will reach their full height every year.
