Black Knight Butterfly Bush (Buddleia davidii 'Black Knight') is a popular ornamental shrub that is prized for its showy, fragrant blooms and its ability to attract butterflies and other pollinators. It is a deciduous shrub that typically grows to be 6 to 8 feet tall and wide, with long, arching branches and lance-shaped leaves that are gray-green in color.
The plant produces clusters of dark purple, almost black, flowers that are highly fragrant and attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees. The blooms typically appear from midsummer to fall and can be up to a foot long.
Black Knight Butterfly Bush is relatively easy to grow and care for, and it is tolerant of a wide range of growing conditions. It prefers full sun and well-drained soil, but it can also tolerate partial shade and moist soil. Pruning is recommended to encourage new growth and maintain the plant's shape.
