Soil

Good drainage is essential. The combination of wet soil and cold temperatures is particularly detrimental.

Pruning

Prune only after new growth emerges in spring. Cut back to just above a set of large, healthy buds.

Uses

All buddleia in the Lo & Behold® series are especially suited to groundcover and edging, as well as being incorporated into gardens, borders, and foundation plantings.

Growing Tips

Plant in full sun for best flowering. Deadheading not required for continuous bloom. In clay soils, plant a bit higher than ground level to divert moisture away from the center of the plant.
