Attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds this summer with the showy flowers of ‘Buzz’ Buddleia, a smaller Butterfly Bush suited for patios or small gardens. This deciduous shrubby perennial is a real butterfly treat massed with sweetly scented, 4-6″ long, arching flower clusters from summer to fall. Enjoy kaleidoscopes (groups of butterflies) flutter to the luscious nectar of its flowers. 
Some maintenance is required such as, deadheading throughout the season to increase flowering, as well as, a good heavy pruning in winter for a nice and tidy shape. In north Texas, it looks spectacular in any garden equipped with well-drained soil and full sun.
