The Modern Southern Garden

The Profile

Nanho Blue Buddleia

The modern southern garden should have a mix of bold color scattered about. Nanho Blue Buddleia is a very fast growing, fragrant shrub that is available in many colors ranging from lilac blues & deep purple to pink & white. It’s an old-fashioned specimen that looks wonderful when planted in sweeps for bold, seasonal color. Give these beauties plenty of room to grow & space accordingly as they can reach 5 feet wide by 6 feet tall. It’s also important to allow the roots a little breathing room so be certain the crown rests slightly above the soil surface when installing them. Once the bloom season ends & it’s time to prepare beds for the winter months, Nanho Blue Buddleia may be trimmed about 1 foot from the ground, then watch it skyrocket quickly come springtime. Learn how to use this beautiful selection when entertaining is in order.

Once you are familiar with several plant varieties, making your own flower arrangements can be fun & fulfilling. If you don’t have these garden staples growing in your green space, select & plant one now from a local nursery to use in a number of lovely ways. Snip & gather Nanho Blue Buddleia cuttings early in the day. They may be accompanied with shasta daisies & greenery such as hostas & ferns for an arrangement that not only screams summer but it offers a sweet fragrance & an effortless, elegant feel to spaces. Conversely, try a monochromatic bouquet by trimming the cuttings at varying heights & arranging them for a tall & full look in glass vases.
