Buddleia Alternifolia

Buddleia Alternifolia Growing Information

Buddleia Alternifolia
Fountain Buddleia, Butterfly Bush, Summer Lilac

Planting:

Buddleia alternifolia is not specific as to soil type, but prepare soil thoroughly before planting — its most important requirement. If planting more than one, space 15 to 18 feet apart.


Maintenance:

Water during long, hot, dry spells to prolong the growing season. Unlike B. davidii, this plant does not die back to the roots each year; it flowers on year-old wood, so prune sparingly (thinning some of the older branches) after flowering has been completed.


Zones:

Zones 5-9
