Peacock™ Buddleia davidii ‘Peakeep’

Butterfly Bush Peacock™ Buddleia davidii ‘Peakeep’ has got to have one of the biggest blooms I have ever seen on a Butterfly bush. Right now we have some wonderful 3 gallon pots in bud and bloom and they are just amazing. Each flower is at least 8″ long and much wider than what I can wrap my fingers around. And scent… amazing! Every time I walk past them the smell over takes me and I go back for another whiff. The butterflies are just now arriving in our area, I have seen a few yellow and black swallowtails.  And the hummers are also enjoying this garden beauty.

Butterfly bush now come in a range of sizes from the compact, mounding form of Butterfly Blue Chip to the tall and mighty varieties or Miss Molly, Purple Emperor, and Peacock just to name a few. Butterfly bushes have a very long bloom time making them a great addition to butterfly gardens or even as a landscape plant.
