Buddleja ‘Silver Anniversary’

Project Description

Buddleja ‘Silver Anniversary’ is a very silver showy rounded tidy shrub that grows well in heat, loves the sun and absolutely shines in the garden. As a late flowering buddleja  it can’t be beaten.

Buddleja ‘Silver Anniversary’ syn B. ‘Morning Mist’ PBR is especially remarkable for its beautiful woolly white foliage, which makes it a lovely addition to a mixed or herbaceous border, creating a strong contrast in hot colour schemes with dark leaved dahlias for example or harmonising with blue, white, pink and soft purple perennials in pastel schemes.

Honey scented white flowers in late summer have a subtle appeal and are attractive to bees and butterflies. Grows 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high and wide

Thrives in well drained fertile soil in a sunny, sheltered site. Effective in a patio container which should be overwintered in a frost free place.
