Pic(k) of the Week: Vista Grove Butterfly Bush

Vista Grove Butterfly Bush

Buddleja, aka butterfly bush, blooms in anticipation of an eponymous visitor.

In Vista Grove, Georgia, on 17 June 2018.
Several species of Buddleja are popular garden plants, the species are commonly known as 'butterfly bushes' owing to their attractiveness to butterflies, and have become staples of the modern butterfly garden; they are also attractive to bees and moths. The generic name bestowed by Linnaeus posthumously honored the Reverend Adam Buddle (1662–1715), an English botanist and rector.
