Lo & Behold ‘Purple Haze’ Butterfly Bush, a new buddleia from Proven Winners ColorChoice, was recently approved for sale in the state of Oregon. ‘Purple Haze’ was certified The Oregon Department of Agriculture for meeting Oregon’s standards for sterility and does not produce unwanted seedlings.
‘Purple Haze’ features uniquely horizontal branches with an abundance of dark purple-blue flowers. The flowers radiate outward and downward like a pinwheel, and are continuous from mid-summer to frost. Its low spreading habit with feathery, deep green leaves make it an excellent ground covering plant.
Developed by Dr. Dennis Werner of NC State University, this buddleia grows to 24-36-inches and is hardy to Zone 5–treat it like a perennial in the North.
