Ellen's Blue Butterfly Bush
Item #: 4260
Zones: 5a to 9b

What started as a stray seedling in the former New York (Seneca Hill) garden of Ellen Hornig took the gardening world by storm. Buddleia 'Ellen's Blue' makes a compact, 4' tall, deer-resistant bush smothered all summer in terminal spikes of blue-violet flowers (RHS 89D)...a hummingbird treat. This unique color in buddleias and its extraordinary fragrant flowers make this one of the best butterfly bush introductions...9 out of 10 butterflies choose Buddleia 'Ellen's Blue'...we agree!
