BUDDLEYA (Butterfly Bush)

Perennial

GREENHOUSE: Sow indoors March 1st for late summer flowers. Easily germinated and no pre-treatment of seed needed. Germinate @ 70°F/21°C for 25 days. Cover seed lightly. Transplant 30 to 35 days after sowing. For saleable green plants allow 10 to 12 weeks in cell packs or 14 to 16 weeks for a 4 in/10 cm pot. Plants grow quickly under warm conditions of 65°F/18°C nights and slower under cooler temps of 50°F/10°C at night. Anything lower than this will damage foliage. Softwood cuttings can be easily rooted during spring and summer. Plants will flower the first season at 15 in/38 cm but will mature at 5 ft/25 m the second year. This is an excellent choice for a seasonal shrub during the summer in cold winter areas. Requires full sun and good drainage. A pH level of 6-7 is best.
