A wonderful addition to any garden, the butterfly bush, Buddleia Pink Delight is a medium sized shrub, which bears slender panicles (up to 37cm long) of bright pink flowers with orange eyes, at the tips of the current year’s growth. These flowers are honey scented and attract butterflies and other pollinators, while the pointed leaves turn butter yellow in autumn. 

Easy to grow and low maintenance, Buddleia Pink Delight has an arching, spreading habit and provides a burst of late summer colour when few other shrubs are in bloom. It is a recipient of the RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit), for all round excellence.
