WEST CHICAGO, Ill. – The Buddleia Flutterby Grande Series by Ball Ornamentals has been certified by The Oregon Department of Agriculture as non-regulated interspecific hybrids for sale in Oregon, and has now listed it on its website as such. Seven Nectar Bush cultivars are approved at the ODA site. Five of those varieties are offered by Ball Ornamentals.

“This distinction by the Oregon Department of Agriculture is a huge validation of the value of these varieties nationally,” said Pete Kruger, general manager for Ball Ornamentals. “Ball Ornamentals is proud to offer an expanding series of ecologically responsible buddleia.”

Flutterby Grande is an interspecific cross with less viable seed that was specifically selected and introduced because of its environmental benefits. It features scented foliage and is heat and drought tolerant.
