36 - 48 in. Sun Mid Summer Purple 3 - 8

This compact new Buddleia has rich royal purple, fragrant flowers are borne on branched panicles from late summer into early fall, just in time to feed the migrating Monarchs passing through. This compact new Buddleia fits easily into urban gardens with its densely compact, rounded habit. Unlike some other dwarf Buddleias that become very wide spreading, ‘Dark Dynasty’ keeps its composure as it ages, growing just 3’ tall and 3 ½’ wide in two years.


Ordinary garden soil will do nicely. Fairly drought tolerant. Increasing the alkalinity of the soil may improve both growth and floral quality. In the north, this shrub-like perennial is best cut back to about 9 inches in the early spring. They will quickly reach their mature height. Buddleias tend to break dormancy late in the spring, so don't worry if you don't see anything happening with them when your other shrubs start to leaf-out. These are very durable and reliable plants.
