Butterfly bush Buddleja 'Empire Blue' blue-purple - Hardy plant

Buddleia davidii 'Empire Blue'
Fragrant beauty
Thanks to its regal appearance, the butterfly bush 'Empire Blue' (Buddleja davidii) will decorate your garden with its deep purple-blue flowers! It has a wonderful smell. The cheerful bush also attracts bees and butterflies! The 'Empire Blue' flowers profusely in late summer.
Prune the hardy bush to around 30 cm above the ground in spring. Plant the Buddleja in a nice spot in full sun. Keep the ground moist and water regularly.

If you buy deciduous shrubs in autumn they might not be looking quite as beautiful as usual. The big benefit of planting shrubs in autumn is that by spring they will be well rooted in the garden and ready to burst into growth.

What do I need?

  • Shovel
  • Bucket
  • Watering can or garden hose

Make sure that the root ball of the Buddleja is sufficiently damp. Place the shrub in a bucket of water for 15 minutes before planting. Create a spacious hole for planting and till the soil well. Place the root ball of the butterfly bush in the planting hole. The top side of the root ball should be just below ground level. Fill the hole up with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.

 

The butterfly bush will grow in all well-drained soil types and does best in full sun. Combine the butterfly bush with bluebeard and summersweet for a true butterfly garden.

Care+

What do I need?

  • Pruning shears
  • Cow manure pellets
  • Watering can or garden hose

Has your butterfly bush grown too large? Clip off all the branches between 30-40 cm. The plant blooms on year-old branches, so this won’t impact flowering. Prune the dead branches off in the spring. Insulate the bottom-most metre of the butterfly bush during harsh winters.

 

In the spring and summer, sprinkle cow manure pellets around the shrub. Water the pellets right away.
