Description

Also know as the butterfly bush, this buddleia has dark forms of purple Buddleia and shows long trusses of deep violet.

This is a large deciduous shrub that produces large arching canes and often grows to its maximum height of 3 metres. The long, narrow foliage is grey-green to green above and white and fuzzy on the underside. Bears long, upright showy flowers which are lilac and orange in the throat. These are followed by small-capsules of fruit which help to give the plant year round colour and interest.

Should be grown in a fertile soil where full sun is available. Also benefits from being pruned back in spring to encourage new growth.
