Today I discovered the first bloom on my Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii) 'Guinevere'.

The fragrant blooms are a very deep purple and the plants are getting larger than I expected in the first year. They appear to be salt tolerant considering they are located on the south side of the yard and we have had high winds from the south and southeast on several occasions since they were planted last fall.

My hummingbirds are going to love this plant!

Just beautiful!
the fragrance is heavy..
especially on warm summer evenings..
yes, the hummers will enjoy..
but also attracted will be multitudes of butterflies..
many types of winged creatures..
both good..
and not so good..
but your plant will provide hours of entertainment..
sit back and enjoy!!!
