Buy Buddleja × alternifolia Unique ('Pmoore12') (PBR) butterfly bush: Flowers for a really long time

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Compact and extremely long flowering, this new hybrid form will liven up patio pots and borders. Fragrant lilac flowers appear in abundance from early summer through to autumn and are an attractive source of nectar for butterflies. However the flowers have no pollen and are sterile, so this variety will not self-seed around your garden. Easy to look after it will appreciate a sunny spot and a hard prune in spring. Flowering on new wood it is fast growing but will still remain compact, only reaching about 1 metre tall, making this exciting new variety from renowned plantsman Peter Moore ideal for small spaces.

  • Garden care: Prune back hard in March, removing all of the previous year's growth to three or four buds. Remove faded flowerheads to encourage more to form.

As expected, still getting established in the garden so I haven't seen it flower but it has flourished with minimal care from me. Looking forward to seeing it flower!

Excellent plant. Just hope it survives the recent heavy snow and frost

Plant received in good condition and has thrived. Yes, it seems to be dwarf, but not a particularly attractive habit. Butterflies and bees appear to prefer other buddlejas.

This plant doesn't seem to have grown at all since I bought it last year. It flowered slightly last summer but nothing like in the pictures on the website. I pruned it earlier this Spring and it has produced only a few leaf buds. I have several other small buddlejas which are all doing well. Maybe this one isn't as robust. Sorry I can not recommend, it's the worst buddleja I have ever had

Due to the awful winter, this little plant has not had a chance to grow! It established well last spring when it was delivered but we are waiting to see how it will grow this year!

The first one I received did hardly nothing and then died!! I contacted Crocus and they sent me another one which was much bigger than the first one and last summer it thrived and grew very well. Attractive plant that although considered dwarf still needs a bit of space around it to enjoy its beauty.

I received a buddleja alternifolia Unique from Crocus today. Info on your website states to prune in March, the plant breeder's website states to prune hard to 30 cms in mid March. Should I prune my newly bought plant, or will it have been pruned at the nursery?

Hello, These will be no need to prune your buddleja this year as it will already have been done for you.
