Typical of the Buddleias or Buddlejas, White Profusion Butterfly Bush is a large stately beacon to butterflies and beneficial insects. A good clear white flower that blooms from late spring through late summer. It has soft silvery undersides on its leaves which complement the white of the flowers.
White Profusion Butterfly Bush. This is about four plants that we took from three inch pots and transplanted into gallons in early spring. By fall, they were large enough to be moved to this area. The row measures about 30 feet long and 8 feet wide and 6 to 8 feet tall. It is very striking in bloom.
