Buddleja davidii Pink Delight attracts insects
Are you always so happy when you see butterflies fluttering around in your garden? To attract butterflies to your garden, it is advisable to plant a butterfly bush. As the name butterfly bush suggests, you can be sure that many butterflies will visit your garden. Since our insects are not at all well off, it is very important that in the near future more gardens are planted with plants that provide food for insects. The Buddleja certainly meets this requirement. This summer lilac rewards you with many pink flowers from July until autumn. If you also use the flowers as cut flowers, you can enjoy the Buddleja shrub twice: indoors in the vase and outdoors in your flower bed.
Pruning the Buddleja in spring
If the Buddleja is pruned correctly, you will be rewarded with many beautiful flowers. The best time to do this is just after winter. You can prune the butterfly bush quite far back, as the flowers appear on the one-year-old wood. It is advisable to do this every year to maintain the shape and stimulate the flowers. If you then regularly remove the wilted flowers during the flowering season, new flowers will continue to appear.
Every garden has room for a Pink Delight summer lilac
Only one thing is important for the butterfly bush, namely a sunny spot. It will produce more flowers and the butterflies will be more likely to find their way into your garden because they love the warmth. The soil in which the summer lilac is planted is not so important, as the Buddleja does not make such high demands on the soil. Buddleja is a much used shrub in the flower bed and can be used in many garden styles. It is beautiful in a group with ground cover or ornamental grasses in the foreground. A much-used application of butterfly bush is as part of a flower hedge.
