Even if yours looks like mine.
In Michigan Buddleia growth usually only comes from new wood. But I swear that last year it leafed out on the old growth, so I left a substantial amount this year to see if it would do it again.
I’ve been watching it closely and so far nothing is happening on the old growth. Buddelia does take forever to begin growing so don't give up on it until at least mid June.
People who have never grown Buddleia sometimes think it is dead and pull it out too early. I am not worried because even if the branches don't leaf out, it is sprouting new growth from the ground. Once it gets going, it’s a vigorous grower and should be 6 feet by early July.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
