This old-fashioned butterfly bush comes by its name earnestly, attracting pollinators and compliments. The long spiky blooms of 'Attraction' are a deep fuchsia color, and the plant itself boasts a more compact habit than most of the old-fashioned types, with silvery-grey foliage that hints at the outstanding drought tolerance of most buddleia. Deadheading 'Attraction' is not necessary, but will help it to bloom much longer.
