These are easy-to-grow and hardy flowering plants that are meant to create a dazzling show of colours.

These red-purple Butterfly bushes are hardy shrubs, able to withstand severe climatic conditions. They prefer full sun to partial shade and thrive in acidic soil that is moist and well-drained. To retain moisture, simply add a layer of mulch with contents of pine barks to the base of the plant.
Separating the faded flower heads will inspire the blooming process. Buddleia bush produces arched stems that hold narrow green leaves. Magenta-red flowers look fabulous shining bright on these leaves. Plant this bush near the pool or in the patio area.
