A Bloomin' Easy® variety, Buddleia Birthday Cake™ is a flowering deciduous shrub offering 3 seasons of interest, blooming and reblooming summer and fall, sometimes to first frost. The large flower spikes, dense with purple blooms, are borne on long stems that stand erect, well above the foliage, reminiscent of candles on a birthday cake (hence the name). The nectar-rich flowers are mildly but sweetly fragrant and extremely pollinator friendly, attracting tons of bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
A Buddleia hybrid, commonly called butterfly bush. Birthday Cake is a colorful shrub with an upright habit and vigorous growth. If allowed, the plant will self-seed, so consider placement carefully. It is a perfect specimen, container, or mixed bed plant but is shown to best effect massed or grouped.
An easy-grow, easy-care shrub, Buddleia Birthday Cake performs best in sunny locations with average, medium moist, well-draining soil. The plant is heat tolerant, deer resistant, and pet friendly. Deadheading regularly encourages and prolongs flowering and discourages any unwanted self-seeding.
