Buddleia alternifolia

Buddleia alternifolia Maximowicz (Loganiaceae)

Alternate-leaf butterfly bush

The earliest of the butterfly bushes to bloom. This fast-growing, cold-hardy species is a choice plant for a butterfly garden. At least one expert considers it "the best all-around butterfly-attracting plant."
