Butterflies flock to Pink Delight!
It is known to be one of the most attractive Butterfly Bush colors for butterflies and its high nectar production feeds pollinators all summer/fall. Pink Delight is large with a dense habit (for a looser habit and slightly smaller butterfly bush you may want to take a look at Royal Red Buddleia). It is a strong grower and will respond well to a hard cut back in late winter. Pruning throughout the year will keep it shapely.
Pink Delight is a great butterfly bush cultivar with it’s pink/mauve flowers standing out against a dense silvery foliage. It is a beautiful shrub in the butterfly garden and is sure to be a greatly loved by your butterflies and other pollinators (Royal Red has darker red/purple blooms and is also attractive to hummingbirds)!
Note: Butterfly bush is considered invasive in some areas (spreading by lightweight seed in the wind) and should be deadheaded, especially in areas where the bush is particularly invasive (Northwest Coastal US, and Eastern coastal areas). In fact sales/cultivation of butterfly bush are prohibited in Oregon so we can not ship plants to Oregon.
