Rely on Magenta Darling to add vivid color and graceful elegance to your landscape. The panicles of this buddleia bloom in a truer, warmer magenta than we typically see in butterfly bushes. The white eyes of the florets provide a striking accent to the purple-red color of each raceme. With a distinct arching habit and large leaves, this buddleia is also more open than other varieties. Use Magenta Darling to create a garden focal point where your eyes can rest as you relax on the patio and watch butterflies gently wing their way to the fragrant, nectar-filled flowers. This rounded, low-growing shrub grows up to 4 1/2' tall and 6' wide and is cold hardy to zone 6. Ships now so you can give your landscape an instant boost.
