Dwarf Butterfly Bush

New on the summer blooming shrubs scene is Buddleia  Lo and Behold ‘Blue Chip’.  This fragrant dwarf butterfly bush will top out at only 24” and form a mounding habit.  ‘Blue Chip’ requires no pruning and is deer resistant.  It also is the delight of butterflies and hummingbirds, and is one of the new non-invasive forms of Buddleia.  (This means it will not spread seeds throughout your yard and the neighborhood.)  ‘Blue Chip’ can be used as a ground cover or in a container, and is blanketed with blue flowers from mid-summer until the first hard frost.  Come meet this well behaved, easy to grow shrub today at Squak Mt.
