Buddleia 'Attraction' (Attraction Butterfly Bush)
Zone: 5a to 9b,
Height: 55" tall
Pot Size: 3 qt. (2.8 L)
This hot new deer-resistant, hummingbird-friendly buddleia is a seedling from UGA's guru of woody plants, Dr. Mike Dirr. The plant was eventually named by Ted Stephens of Nurseries Caroliniana. Buddleia 'Attraction' flowers towards the red spectrum and is a dramatic improvement over Buddleia 'Royal Red'. This is a tremendous breakthrough in butterfly bush breeding--and who knows...perhaps it will attract redder butterflies.
