Buddleia davidii 'Peakeep'

English Butterfly™ Peacock™ Butterfly Bush

Large (to 8-10 in long) flower clusters on dense, well-branched shrubs that are 1/2 to 1/3 the size of typical B. davidii plants. Mildly fragrant lavender-pink flowers bloom from June to September and sometimes to first frost. In Zones 5 and 6, it will often die to the ground in winter and therefore is often grown in the manner of an herbaceous perennial. Even if plants do not die to the ground, they usually grow more vigorously, produce superior flowers and maintain a better shape if cut close to the ground in late winter each year. Removal of spent flower spikes during the growing season may encourage additional bloom.
