  • A very hardy early flowering deciduous shrub
  • Will grow in any well drained soil
  • Sun or shade
  • Flowers in spring before B. alternifolia
  • Has larger flowers than B. alternifolia with a scent.
  • Attractive oak shaped leaves that change to maroon and yellow in the autumn
  • Excellent screening plant.The garden birds love it in my garden. In the winter they roost in as it is close to the bird table.
  • This is a sterile buddleja  DOES NOT SEED.

Remove all the old flowering shoots before the end of June.  It pays to reduce the height by at least 50% left unpruned

it will get very large.
