This butterfly bush puts on one of the most impressive performances we've seen, blooming seamlessly throughout the entire summer season. When we talked to the breeder, Peter Podaras, he noted that he's never seen a buddleia so consistent with its blooms before. It is low-maintenance too, as the blooms are self-hiding. A little different than self-cleaning, they won't fall off cleanly after they fade, but new blooms grow up and over the old ones, hiding them from view. The habit is nice as well, very full and rounded, a reliable addition to the shrub border. Buddleia 'Summer of Love'
