Not sure you can at this point-- this is a cutting I took from my daughters butterfly bush and she does not know the name of it. I left these flower buds on for this reason as normally they would be removed.

OK since no one knows what this is I will just call it Butterfly Bush.

Steve,

It could be Buddleia 'Pink Delight':

http://www.monrovia.com/plant-catalog/p ... rfly-bush/

It's difficult to know without more information about the height of it ('Pink Delight' grows to 4-6 feet) and seeing an entire flower spike.

There are also new miniature versions of Buddleia now available (we have a lilac colored one that we grow in a container):

http://shrubsource.com/buddleia-lo-and- ... -chip-1792

These are much more compact, growing only half as tall and wide.

As far as I know, 'Pink Delight' is the only variety of pink colored Buddleia.

I hope this helps a little, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for responding. The bush I took the cuttings from was rather large at least 6' in height. Funny thing I remember the flowers as being more blue than pink, perhaps the flowers will change as time goes on.

Steve,

There is also a variety of Buddleia called 'Bi-Color'---we are growing it this season and the flowers can be a pink/purple/peach combination---it's very pretty and unique. Here is a link:

I may have a better read on the plant as it gets bigger.

I've had 'Pink Delight' before & didn't think it had a yellow eye but I may be wrong. 'Inspired Pink' is very, very light pink so don't think it is that either. It's obviously not 'Lo & Behold..' if it was 6'. I have many but that one stumped me. It looks like 'Flutterby Petite Tutti Fruitti' but that one only gets up to 3' or so.
