This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: July to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This beautiful new buddleja is quite compact, which makes it perfect for the patio as well as the border. Its stems are quite distictively upright too, are they are topped with conical clusters that hold lots of small, double, lilac-purple flowers. These are irresistible to butterflies, so this easy to grow and undemanding shrub will work well in a wildlife-friendly garden or cottage garden, where it will look amazing in midsummer when in full bloom.

  • Garden care: Prune back hard in March, removing all of the previous year's growth to three or four buds.
