The heat of this magenta hue is incredible--any summer border that featuring Color Crush will be extraordinary. And it's down to a highly unusual buddleia habit to show these blooms off properly. Instead of growing outwards, this shrub is fastigiate, so the stems grow straight upwards and hold the searing blooms aloft like pink torches. The scapes are very long and dramatic through an extended bloom season, so beneficial pollinators will know right where to go. If you can't get enough of the striking color, take some blooms inside in cut flower bouquets. You will be one of few lucky gardeners to grow this incredible buddleia--there are only a few hundred Color Crush Buddleia plants in existence. As a special introduction by the renowned hybridizer, Peter Podaras, we're proud to have even a limited supply. Buddleia 'PODARASNGA1' PP#31,829
