Buy Buddleja Free Petite Tutti Fruitti ('Podaras No 13') (PBR) butterfly bush Free Petite: Long-lasting flowers put on a dazzling display

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

    Orange-eyed pink flowers put on a dazzling and bountiful display, as well as attracting lots butterflies to the garden over several months from midsummer. Low-growing and easy to care for, this super shrub will pack a big punch in the mixed or shrub border, and it also does very well in pots.

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

I am not sure if I'd buy it again

I potted it into a larger pot but as the main stem was growing it got blown over in the wind and broke. It came on again - and yet again, in a strong wind, the main new stem which by then had some lovely flowers, broke. It's too late to know if it will produce another stem but I live in hope! I'd recommend it, but not in a windy spot.

Was originally going to use it as ground cover in a border but its low sideways growing stems look better in a container It flowered quite late in the season and the flower spikes look almost black before they turn a lighter purple It seems to have survived the ravishes of a cold wet Scottish winter

Buddleja free petite tutti fruitti ('Podaras No 13') (PBR) butterfly bush Free Petite I note this does not have your 'Bee logo' (Bee attracting). Does this mean it is not as attractive to bees and butterflies as the standard Buddlejas? Thank you

Hello, We have been waiting confirmation from the breeders about this, as the plants in the FREE PETIT series are recent hybrids of B. alternifolia x B. davidii. The RHS however have acknowledged that they are attractive to bees, so we have added the logo onto the item page.
