Further Information about Buddleja Davidii Empire Blue Shrubs

We recommend cutting back your Buddleja Davidii Empire Blue hard every March to around 3-4 buds. This will ensure every year you get a full, healthy and bushy plant with the maximum flowers. With its very hardy nature, you can plant in almost any location from full sun through to partial shade in any well drained soil. It will swiftly bush out due to its fast growing nature to around 250cm high and 150cm wide so an ideal planting location is at the back of your beds and borders. For a riot of colour for many months of the year you could plant with Buddleja Davidii Royal Red or Wisteria Lane – perfect for country cottage gardens! Buddleja tend to self-seed freely so you may find over time you have more than one plant for you and your pollinators to enjoy!
