Genus Description Buddleja (or Buddleia) is a genus of about 100 species of evergreen, semi-evergreen, and deciduous shrubs, sometimes trees and climbers, and a few herbaceous perennials, from riversides, rocky areas, and scrub in Asia, Africa, and North and South America. They are cultivated for their panicles of small, tubular, usually fragrant flowers, and sometimes for their lance-shaped to broadly ovate, usually opposite leaves. All except the climbers are suitable for a mixed or shrub border, or as specimens; where not hardy, grow in a cool greenhouse. Buddleja davidii (Butterfly bush or summer lilac) and several other species are attractive to many insects, especially butterflies. From summer to autumn, Buddleja davidii bears dense panicles, 12 inches or more long, of fragrant, lilac to purple flowers, often with orange or yellow eyes.

Water freely when in growth, sparingly in winter; Outdoors, grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Cut back to low permanent framework annually as buds begin to swell in early spring. For subshrubs, and for drastic renovation, cut back all flowered stems close to the base.
Pests and Diseases Susceptible to capsid bug, caterpillars, weevils, mullein moth, and spider mites. Fungal leaf spots and diebacks can occur.
