The buddleja or butterfly bush (Buddleia davidii) is probably the most emblematic plant of the wildlife garden and it deserves its reputation. Easy to grow and take care of (with the great advantage that it will withstand and even thrive on drastic pruning), it is a sure-fire way of attracting some of the most beautiful insects, including many butterflies, to your garden.
