The Q&A Archives: Butterfly Bushes

Question: I am looking for a tri-color (white, pink and lavender or purple) Butterfly Bush. Are there such bushes? Where could I find one? One nursery told me I would have to buy the 3 colors and set them all out together?

Answer: There are numerous Buddleia cultivars, but each blooms in only one color. I'm afraid the nursery was right - to have three different colors on one shrub, you'll have to do some customizing. Grafting isn't all that difficult - good luck with your project!
