Description

Good Golly! What Color and Fragrance
What a beautiful shade of red. We call it "sangria," but really it's an ever-changing blend of red, magenta, and burgundy, far and away the closest butterfly bush ever to the "true red"—that elusive fire-engine shade—gardeners have tried to add their collection for decades.

These bottlebrush blooms begin in midsummer and continue all the way to frost in the sunny garden, attracting every butterfly, bee, and hummingbird for miles around. Miss Molly is very free-flowering, so cut all the blooms you like for the vase. There will be more in no time.

Reaching 5 feet high and 5 to 6 feet wide, Miss Molly grows quickly, and needs very little care to continue flowering beautifully year after year. Cut it down to about one-third its original height in late winter and early spring to improve branching and flower production and let it go. There is no easier plant for the sunny garden.

Miss Molly was developed at North Carolina State University by Dennis Werner, who bred it from Buddleia Miss Ruby x Attraction, classic varieties with terrific vigor and durability.

Miss Molly blooms vary depending on climate with more red tones in warmer climates and more purple in cooler regions.

This variety of Buddleia has been approved as a seedless butterfly bush cultivar and is considered sterile, producing less than two percent viable seeds, so it will not spread. It is approved for sale in all states without restriction. https://www.oregon.gov/ODA/programs/NurseryChristmasTree/Pages/ButterflyBush.aspx

Arrived in good condition

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

Ordered in fall for desert garden. Small plant (quart size) arrived in good condition and appears to be doing well 2 weeks following planting. Will review again after plant has had time to acclimate and show growth/blooms.

Nice bush - I have high hopes.

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I bought this Miss Molly to give a bit of color to my back yard. I'd like to help the butterflies so hope they like it. I also bought and was given milkweed which is supposed to be the best help to the butterflies. We will see what happens next year. This bush is about 10 inches tall so it has a way to go. I am not sure about it surviving the winter as the roots were not huge, but will keep it watered and see what happens. Evidently it did have multiple blooms prior to being dug up and potted to send to me.
