Product information "Fountain Butterfly Bush 'Unique'"

• A butterfly magnet and source of food for bees
• Suitable for small gardens and balconies
• Lush and long flowering
Buddleija alternifolia 'Unique'
A novelty from England, the overhanging flowers of this compactly growing summer lilac are like a waterfall and they are the reason why this plant is known as the Fountain Butterfly Bush.
The flowers of Buddleija alternifolia 'Unique'
This plant is a "bubbly flower fountain" that blooms exceptionally lush and long. The summer lilac 'Unique' magically attracts butterflies, bees and other insects with its fragrant blue-violet flowers. 'Unique' blooms on the one-year-old wood from June to July and then has a small, second flowering in early autumn. The silvery green foliage forms a beautiful contrast to the flowers.
A strong pruning in early spring enormously promotes the plant’s willingness to flower and even after the first main bloom the plant should be cut back in order to get a better second flowering.
Site requirements of Buddleija alternifolia 'Unique'
The butterfly lilac 'Unique' prefers to have a sunny to a partially shady, warm location. The soil should be rich in humus and not prone to waterlogging.
