Lochinch Butterfly Bush is a stately shrub with felty leaves and beautiful dark lilac flowers. It blooms before the Buddleia davidiis start in early summer. Then it stops for the summer and starts again in the fall. Then, it will be one of the last butterfly bushes to stop blooming in the fall, making it a great asset for any butterfly garden.
If you garden in zones 7-9, this bloom sequence makes it a great companion companion to Royal Red Butterfly Bush which starts its summer bloom just as Lochinch shuts down for the summer.
