Buddleia davidii 'Black Knight'

Buddleia 'Black Knight' is a great perennial for sun, producing blooms so irresistible to butterflies its common name is the "butterfly bush". This variety's deep purple blooms have a lovely honey aroma that is irresistible! We love nothing more than to sit on our porch on a warm summer evening with a cool drink and enjoy this wonderfully summer scent.
As your annuals are beginning to feel the stress and strain of summer, Buddleias are just getting started! Somewhat more vigorous than other varieties, the 'Black Knight' will bloom repeatedly from mid summer to mid fall. Removing spent blooms will encourage tons of new flowers to replace the previous ones, and will renew that terrific summer smell.
Deer and drought tolerant, this beautiful Buddleia also makes a great addition to fresh arrangements for its rich color and sweet smell.

Reviewer: flyingsquirrelgirl from Ocean Springs, MS United States  
My only complaint is with myself--I did not allow this lovely bush enough space in the garden, and I only planted one. "Black Knight" died to the ground in the severe cold of last winter, but sprouted up early, stands 4 feet tall now, and has been blooming at least 6 weeks this spring. It is absolutely gorgeous in every way, burgeoning through both the torrential rains of April and early May, and the following weeks of uninterrupted sun. No one looking at it could possibly guess what a tiny little baby arrived in its box from Growers Exchange last spring. I am sorry I waited til it was out of stock this year to think of planting more...though I don't know where I'd put them. Maybe by next year I'll have a new plan....
