In the midst of reaping the season's healthful fruits, veggies and herbs, don't forget to take time to admire the blooms and butterflies! Buddleia butterfly bushes, also known as Summer lilacs, attract all kinds of butterflies (and interesting moths and hummingbirds) like a magnet. Today our Buddleja davidii 'Bicolor' is full of visiting Painted Lady butterflies.
By planting a variety of nectar producing plants, shrubs and trees, you create attractive gardens for you to admire, as well as beneficial habitats for insects and wildlife.
