Arbor Gate's Picks of the Month
Orange Sceptre Buddleia (Buddleia ‘Orange Sceptre’)
A buddleia hybrid – B. stachyoides and B. tubiflora fell in love and produced this orange blooming, 8’ tall, deer resistant butterfly bush that flowers virtually all year – peaking fall through early summer – a butterfly & hummingbird magnet. The 1’ long spikes of bright orange flowers open from bottom to top. 11’’ long fuzzy gray-green leaves are attractive all on their own. It was evergreen into the low 20’s. Sun/partial sun.
