I just want to mention that the Buddleia Davidii (butterfly bush) is considered highly invasive and even detrimental to butterflies. It actually robs them of their food source. It will attract them so if all you're interested in is seeing the gorgeous butterflies, it will do the trick. But it would be wiser to use other things.

Please research carefully before planting. In the case of Buddleia Davidii, please at least read this article before deciding: https://www.rodalesorganiclife...
