Windy Hill Butterfly Bush (Buddleja davidii ‘Windy Hill’)
Windy Hill Butterfly Bush
Drought Tolerant Once Established Perk up the look of your landscape with this hard-working modern cultivar! You’ll gain a showy, compact shrub that provides nectar-rich blooms when most other plants are finished flowering for the season.
Entice those beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds to your yard with Windy Hill Butterfly Bush (Buddleja davidii ‘Windy Hill’). This is a robust, upright selection with lilac-pink flowers and sweet orange centers.
Sun-loving Butterfly Bush offers a big benefit for local pollinators, too. Plant them in your borders, or keep them in containers for your patio or balcony.
Monarch butterflies really appreciate the nutritious nectar as they gear up for their long, annual migration south. Pair this with late-blooming perennials like Sedum, Anemone and Aster for a welcome addition to your Butterfly Garden.
The flowering panicles are held at the tips of the branches. Enjoy their honey-scent in a prominent position.
Use a single Windy Hill Butterfly Bush as a specimen in a small space garden, and you’ll have a wonderful focal point to study all the butterflies that visit. Keep your camera handy to capture their antics!
Make the most of their cool, gray-green foliage and an upright, spreading habit. Install several in a zigzagging planting pattern three feet apart on center for an effective mass planting.
Fill your bare, open areas with their spicy blooms. The contrast of soft summer lilac and bright orange catches your eye, but won’t overwhelm you, either.
Windy Hill Butterfly Bushes also make a charming informal hedge along your driveway or repeated along the back of your border. Once their root systems are established, they’ll become waterwise (although we do recommend you supply water on a consistent basis for best results!)
Trim the blooms as they start to fade for a second show as an indoor cut flower. You’ll encourage more blooms, and clean up at the same time!
