The Butterfly Bush we all have been yearning for, Buzz™ Sky Blue is an ultra-compact variety with full-sized blooms of rich azure. Fragrant and very, very long-blooming, it is a lovely addition to patio containers as well as to the sunny to lightly shaded border.

One of the easiest perennials to grow, Butterfly Bush behaves more like a shrub in the garden, boasting woody stems that can (and should) be pruned right down to the ground in late winter. Normally B. davidii varieties reach 5 to 10 feet tall, but Buzz™ is just 4 feet high and wide, well-branched and bursting with full-sized flowerheads!

The sky-blue blooms on this plant are held in panicles fully 6 inches long. Fragrant and very attractive to butterflies and bees, they begin in early summer and continue throughout summer and well into fall in most climates. You can count of 5 months of bloom from Buzz™!

And the blooms are superb for cutting, lasting well in the vase and perfuming the room with their scent. The foliage is attractive as well, with gray new growth that turns a soft shade of sage green in summer.

Best of all, you can grow Buzz™ in containers on the deck, porch, or patio! So compact, it will continue to set huge blooms even in small confined spaces. Just give it plenty of sunshine and water, and let Buzz™ do the rest!

This perennial is hardy in zones 5-9, and tolerates light shade in the warmer reaches of its hardiness range. Very carefree and indifferent to stress, it will be a long-lived and lovely performer in your garden. Zones 5-9.
