Buddleja plants are really low maintenance, but they do benefit from pruning in early spring. Pruning will prevent them from becoming leggy and helps to maintain a nice compact plant. Buddleja plants flower on new growth, so pruning will also help to promote lots of new stems that will flower in the same year.
Buddleja 'Buzz Ivory'
Buzz are mini Buddlejas which are ideal for large pots or small terrace beds. They flower from July to October. The uses are many for these interesting, strong and graceful plants which flower throughout the summer with a refined scent attracting butterflies from far and near, creating an ever changing scene in the garden and adding height and décor in interaction with other plants. Buddleja Buzz have a compact, well branching habit, which is very ornamental and produces flowers already in the first season. Plant in full sun, e.g. in large containers or pots from where they may later be planted out in the garden beds, preferably in the foreground as they do not reach the size of ordinary buddlejas.
Water and feed regularly, but take care neither to over-water nor to let dry out! The plants are relatively hardy, that is after most winters the growth will continue from last year’s branches. Plants will grow up to one metre in height. It is recommended to cut withered branches after the new shoots start appearing in spring
Like its larger cousins, dwarf patio variety Buddleja Buzz™ will grow in almost any well drained soil. And because it's a dwarf variety it will grow just as happily in a container on your patio. The best planting time for Buddleja is in the spring or autumn while the soil is moist. Choose a position in full sun or semi-shade.
