Description

We’ve had such success with other newly bred, hybrid buddlejas like ‘Dreaming Purple’ in the last few years, we’ve decided to trial more. This one flowers for at least twice as long as the native buddleia, covered in butterflies and bees all summer and pouring out that delicious, characteristic sweet perfume to draw the pollinators in.

Care Tips

This dwarf variety is ideal as a patio specimen or as a feaure plant in a small garden. Water and dead-head as often as you can and start a weekly feed after about a month. Prune back hard in early spring.
