Add a sculptural focal point in your Butterfly Garden with a Butterfly Bush covered with enormous, lavender-purple flowering panicles! Put Grand Cascade Butterfly Bush (Buddleja x ‘Grand Cascade’ PP# 30868) to work as a showy, nectar-rich resource for your precious local ecology and doesn’t display seeding!

Enjoy watching jewel-toned hummingbirds cavort and dip into the cascading display of drooping blooms. Each thick panicle measures a foot or more and grows out, down and away from the shrub!

You won’t believe how much visual impact they make in your landscape. The beautiful shade of purple partners beautifully with many other flowers.

Snip a few for an amazing cut flower arrangement. Or, let them fill in at the back of your sunny perennial border.

They are great for screening and solve some important privacy concerns for you. Use multiples in a zigzagging planting pattern spaced four feet apart on center.

You’ll hide unsightly views or block nosey neighbors in a delightful way. They grow quickly…so by the time summer is in full swing, you’ll feel secure without a heavy feeling of oppression.

Give them a spot in full sun with well-drained soil. Try them near a window or doorway, where you’ll be able to smell their honey-scented blooms.

Grand Cascade Butterfly Bush is also well-suited for use as a specimen or grouping in a lawn planting bed. They’ll add a charming look at the end of the season…when other flowering shrubs have bloomed and finished.

This improved Buddleja makes a huge visual impact.
