Q.Is buddleia poisonous to rabbits?

Creating a rabbit run on small raised bed and want to have shrubs on border…buddleia especially to attract butterflies for my granddaughter to enjoy. A list of a few plants, climbers or bushes that are rabbit friends would be really helpful too. Can’t find any site with definitive answers as to what is suitable. Thank you..from Buster and Dolly (the bunnies)!

Here's an article on buddleia, or butterfly bush:
