I have recently purchased 100 seeds of the Buddleia Davidii. I've read the Q&A and understand that they can grow to 6 - 10 feet, but can be trimmed back. And the instructions say to space 4' apart. If I planted all 100 seeds, I would need 400 feet of ground. (assuming planting in a row)

Have you ever heard of anyone using these bushes as a type of "hedge" between yards? They seem to be easily maintained, and can be trimmed down in "off" seasons, yet look beautiful in bloom. Do people normally plant all 100 seeds?

What would you recommend as a ground cover underneath the bush - to cut down on weeds, or maintenance of the ground underneath?
