Lo & Behold® Blue Chip Dwarf Butterfly Bush

Buddleja x 'Blue Chip' PP #19,991

SKU
07441
This breakthrough selection has all the fragrance and butterfly appeal of traditional varieties in a small, easy to maintain package. Blue Chip stays under 3 feet without any pruning in most climates, but may reach up to 6 feet in warmer areas. It blooms continuously from mid-summer to mid-fall and is sterile so will not set seedlings. Great for borders and perennial beds. Evergreen in mild climates; perfect for season-long annual color in colder winter areas.
