This plant is perfect for late season flower color! 'Violet Cascade' has the same cascading habit as the other members of the series, but with deep purple, cascading flowers. Through 4 years of monitoring for sterility we have not observed seed set - a stand out trait among Buddleia.
Butterfly Bushes have certainly earned their place in the garden over the years, and its easy to see why. Just when we need a breath of fresh air in the late summer heat, they happily burst into bloom. At a time when many other plants are already spent, buddleias are just beginning their show. Their passive coloring and texture makes a wonderful backdrop for perennials, and you'll love the butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds that flock to their honey-scented blossoms.
