    Sold by Plants Express, California's #1 Online Plant Nursery, Buzz Midnight Butterfly Bush is a favorite among gardeners with its dense compact growth that won’t grow too large or reseed like older varieties. This butterfly bush is easy to grow, problem free, and will add beauty to any space.

    Buzz Midnight Butterfly Bush is compact in plant size but the cone-shaped flower clusters are full size, 6-8 inches long, the same size as regular Buddlejas. The gorgeous dark purple flowers with golden-orange eyes bloom summer through fall, attracting a variety of butterflies and other pollinators for months. The dull green leaves have lighter, silvery-green undersides that also add dimension and interest in the garden. Buddleja ‘Buzz Midnight’ is a compact shrub with shorter internodes on the stems that result in a dense, bushy rounded woody shrub. This deciduous or semi-deciduous shrub will drop its leaves in winter.

    Buddleja davidii 'Buzz Midnight' is versatile and can be used in a variety of garden styles, from traditional cottage gardens to modern and minimalist landscapes. It's perfect for borders or adding structure and interest to a mixed border, and its compact size makes it an excellent choice for smaller gardens, patios, or balconies. This is the ideal plant for pollinator-friendly gardens.

    Buzz Midnight Butterfly Bush is a beautiful, low-maintenance flowering shrub with a long flowering season. It's perfect for attracting pollinators and adding color to your landscape, and its compact size makes it a great choice for smaller spaces. With its stunning dark purple, fragrant flowers, this plant is a must-have for any garden enthusiast.

    Plant care

    Buddleja Buzz Midnight is easy to grow and requires minimal maintenance. It prefers well-draining soil in a location with full sun

    After planting your Buzz Buddleja, water deeply and regularly to encourage a good root system. Reduce frequency after the roots are established. One recommendation is to water when the top 3 inches of soil is dry.

    In milder climates, prune back the plant in late fall when it has finished flowering to maintain its compact shape. In colder climates, prune in early spring after the last frost. Flowers are produced on new stems; cutting back the branches will promote new growth and result in more flowers. Remove faded or dead flowers throughout the blooming season to encourage more blooms. Feed in spring with G&B Organics All Purpose Fertilizer 4-4-4.

    The Buddleja Buzz series was bred to be smaller than the common butterfly bush (Buddleja davidii). Most Buzz varieties can grow up to 5 feet tall, but can be smaller depending on growing conditions, pruning practices, and local climate.

    Buddleja Buzz Midnight is hardy in USDA zones 5-9 and is considered a deciduous shrub. In warmer, mild climates the leaves may remain on the branches year-round but will appear semi-dormant or “sluggish” until spring when it starts to actively grow. A hard prune is recommended in late fall to promote new spring growth which will result in more flowers.

    Buddleja, with a “j”, is the correct spelling for the genus but is often spelled as Buddleia. According to Missouri Botanical Garden, “...Linnaeus named the genus Buddleja (pronounced with a silent “j”) which is still considered to be the proper spelling (first name survives) according to the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature.”

    Buddleja Buzz Midnight (‘TOBUDMIDNI’) PP23464 PPAF - U.S. Plant Patent is pending, asexual reproduction is prohibited. A plant patent is good for 20 years.

    Overall, Buzz Midnight Buddleja is a low-maintenance plant that's easy to grow and can be enjoyed in the garden for years.
