Lo and Behold Blue Chip Buddleia by Proven Winners is everything and more. The first dwarf buddleia on the market. Since the day Lo and Behold arrived at my door back in April, it hasn’t stopped blooming. It was located in an area that received too much shade when I first planted it. Since moving it, it has gone bloom crazy. I would say it’s a fast grower and gives many rewards with very little care. It really likes a good full day of sun to cover itself with blooms. The blooms are a pretty powdery blue.
We just had 4 days of glorious rain that was desperately needed. Yesterday, the clouds parted and the sun came out for about 6 hours. I can’t describe what that did for my plants so I’ll just show you. Nothing like rain to perk things up.
Maybe the best part about this plant is that the mature height is only 3 feet. This makes it great for container planting.
