Shake things up in your butterfly garden with this old-fashioned variegated buddleia. A sport off the classic variety 'Royal Red', it has similarly colorful flowers but offers boldly variegated foliage instead of the usual green. That means even before it starts to bloom in summer, it's a showy contributor in the flower bed or border. Deadheading is not required but will prolong bloom.
