Growing to only two feet high and wide, there is a space in every garden or patio for the High Five Purple Butterfly Bush. With its flower spikes of purple, double blooms that rise above its bright-green foliage, it will brighten up any outdoor space. Adored by pollinators, this shrub is great for attracting wildlife into your garden. The High Five Purple Butterfly Bush flowers from late spring onwards and if deadheaded regularly can bloom for months.

Unlike some buddleias, this dwarf cultivar forms a perfectly small and upright mound. Being deciduous, its growth will die back in winter only to reappear the following spring. This butterfly bush is tough and heat tolerant to the point where it thrives in full sun. As a sterile cultivar, this buddleia will not self-seed, so it will not spread aggressively like some types. Being so compact, it is ideal for filling a small space in a border or growing on its own in a planter. 

High Five Purple Butterfly Bush Care

For the most prolific blooms, High Five Purple Butterfly Bush is best grown in full sun. Disliking its roots sitting in water, it prefers to be grown in free-draining soil. This buddleia doesn’t require a huge amount of water, but it will need ample and regular drenching during hot and dry spells and if grown in a container. Butterfly bushes do not need fertilizing when grown directly in the ground. However, when grown in a pot, an annual spring feed of a slow-release fertilizer can help replace any lost nutrients and encourage blooming. 

As the sumptuous, purple blooms begin to fade, they can be deadheaded to make way for new buds. In spring, the stems can be cut back to 3 to 4 buds, ready for new growth to appear. When growing High Five Purple Butterfly Bush in a container, move it under cover during the winter to protect it from the lowest temperatures and severe storms. 

High Five Purple Butterfly Bush Spacing

As a compact form, High Five Purple Butterfly Bush is perfectly suited to growing in a container with an opening of around 12 to 18 inches. If planting this buddleia out in a group, it can be planted at a spacing of 2 to 3 feet apart.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
