We are truly excited about Buddleia 'Summer Skies' after trying so many less than stellar variegated butterfly bushes. Buddleia 'Summer Skies' was developed at the University of Connecticut by Dr. Mark Brand and Dr. William Smith who were able to chemically mutate buddleia seedlings, one of which resulted in Buddleia 'Summer Skies'. In the ground, expect a 4.5' tall shrub with a similar spread, clothed with dark green leaves edged with a wide yellow border that ages to cream. Starting in late spring, the clumps are topped with spikes of light lavender...a great attractant for and subsequent color echo with variegated butterflies!
