Buddleia davidii 'Twilight"



 Twilight Butterfly Bush Flower


Twilight Butterfly Bush, introduced by Mountain Valley Growers in 1998, is a soft, dark-purple flowering shrub of moderate height. Not as dark as Black Knight Butterfly Bush, nor as tall, Twilight is a better choice for the smaller garden. Still a good six to eight feet in height, Twilight Butterfly Bush has proven to be a wonderful addition to our Butterfly Bush selection. It has adapted extremely well to the intense summer heat of our semi-arid climate.

Below is a three year old hedge that is getting ready to bloom. It shields the nursery from the busy street on the other side.

Butterfly Bush used as a hedge.


When picked early in the bloom cycle, Twilight Butterfly Bush makes a remarkably good cut and dried flower.

Twilight Butterfly Bush makes a great addition to our Wildlife Herb Garden Six Pack and to our Crafter's Herb Garden Six Pack.

It might also be included in our Thirty-Six Pack
Butterfly Attractor Assortment

This plant is sometimes available in plug trays. These trays hold 128 of all the same plant.  They are a great low cost way to fill a lot of space. Each cell is 3/4 of inch by an inch. Check here to see if Twilight Butterfly Bush Plug Trays are available.
